I'm a First Generation college student dedicated to bettering the communities that I am a part of. I love classical music, pineapple pizza, running, and, recently, ceramics. I feel “okay” about the cold but make the best of it by doing fun activities outside like ice skating on Occom Pond and sledding down the golf course. The reason that I chose Dartmouth is because of its people and the engaging atmosphere that we learn in. Proud to be an immigrant.
English and Government, with a minor in African African-American Studies
Imagine what Shonda Rhimes/any fiction writer does and that’s what I’m learning how to do. I write my own stories and develop them, bettering my descriptive and writing skills. For my final projects, I submitted two short stories which I crafted. At first, it was challenging because I had no idea what I would write about, but enjoyed the creative process.
In this course, we examine the relationship between politics and the novel in order to understand how novels have affected Africa. The course employs a comparative method of looking at the novels, employing other fields of study as a method of study. The readings were incredibly interesting and complex as we tried to unpack the politics of
Africa through novels.
Upon coming to Dartmouth, you'll quickly realize that we do a lot of traveling. Whether you go on a FSP (Foreign Study Program) or LSA (Language Study Abroad), or you go traveling with your friends, we move around a lot. As I write this, I'm at Gate 10 at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport on my way to Washington D.C. where I will vie for the National Youth of the Year title.
