What do you do for a campus job or work study?

In addition to being a Peer Mentor Leader, I work at the Writing Center as a Peer Consultant and am also a Note-taker and Peer Tutor for the Office of Academic Skills.

What are you up to this summer? And what are you most looking forward to?

This summer I am returning to Arusha, Tanzania for a second time to teach and continue my independent research on education as a means of empowerment for underprivileged children. I am looking forward to creating a video documentary to share the life stories of the teachers and students I meet in Tanzania. When I return to America, I will be teaching at the Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center in Washington DC. I am most looking forward to working with children from around the world.

How has WC changed your life? Or, what does WC mean to you?

The professors at Washington College have changed my life. They have pushed me to live up to my fullest potential as a student by getting to know me as an individual and helping me achieve my personal goals such as obtaining two grants from the Cater Society of Junior Fellows to teach in Tanzania. I am grateful to have professors who truly care about me and my peers.
