    What is a project you are currently working on:

    I am working on writing some poems. I have been writing for a while so I want to work on improving my style and looking forward to competing in some Spoken Word Competitions. I am reading Neruda for inspiration and like him I see myself evolving into a more sophisticated writer. 

    Talk about engineering school?

    I feel excited, I am still in the process of looking at different branches of engineering and honing in on a specific area of study. I am not really nervous. I am looking at Columbia right now, and I am excited to live in the city again.

    You didn’t chooser your major right away. Talk about that path.

    I cam in as a music major and then I thought perhaps I wanted to philosophy. But I realized even though you may find something interesting you may not want to necessarily pursue it as a concentration so in the end I went with something I feel a natural compulsion for, math and physics.

    Something you’d like to see change at fandm after your gone:

    I would like to see more diverse student involvement in multicultural clubs. For example I feel like the cultural clubs right now are exclusively attended by people who are of that culture I would like see people from other cultures be involved too.

    How can we change that?

    People assume that these clubs are created for that particular background but they aren’t. They are to increase integration among students and create cultural awareness.

    Favorite thing about Ware:

    The piano room. It’s where I find peace.

    Favorite professor?

    Professor Moog from the Chem.  Department

    One thing that would have made life at college easier:

    Having more home-cooked meals. Although I don’t know how I would’ve gotten around here…

    But you can cook right?

    Yeah I have definitely come up with a few recipes in the Ware Kitchen this year. And I definitely appreciate cooking more now!

    What is a project you are currently working on: Working with a local church to raise money for malaria nets. Just asking for donations.

    Summer Plans: Doing a bike ride from Florida to Maine. For a project sponsored by the American bible society that will raise money for trauma victims in the Congo, mainly women. Congo is rape capital of the world because there is so much internal conflict there.

    Plans for the future? Living life. Enter into a PhD program eventually. Taking a year off from school. Probably go into a program focusing on development in Africa. I want to eventually become fluent in French.

    Advise to youngens? If you have an idea run with it. There is always someone out there who is willing to help you just have to look a little harder sometimes. Always tell your mother “I love you”. Spend time in another country; it’s good for the soul.
