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.
This past weekend I went to Boston, Massachusetts to visit some friends. I was excited to leave Hanover or as I like to call it, the middle of the woods. I -- along with many others -- jokingly refer to Dartmouth's location as incredibly remote, to put it in nice terms. We sometimes say that we need to get away and go and visit civilization. For me, it's an incredibly big shift coming from the NY metro area which is so densely populated; to put it in perspective, I attended a high school that had an enrollment of 3,156 while Dartmouth's undergraduate enrollment is 4,3110.
