What's your favorite class at Clark?

One of my favourite classes was a French Translation Workshop where I learned about translating texts from French into English. This was one of the most unique classes I've taken and I was challenged to use newly acquired skills. As part of the class, I had the chance to work as a teaching assistant and translator at a community based organisation called African Community Education (ACE). ACE works with children who are refugees or recent immigrants that need help with their studies and want to meet people from the community! This was an amazing experience as I learned about youth work and education, and I plan to continue volunteering there this year!

What makes you feel most alive?

Spending time with positive people, traveling and trying new things!

What's your favorite thing to do in Worcester?

I love exploring Worcester and checking out the cool street art, attending events at the parks, and eating at the delicious restaurants!

What are you currently working on?

I'm currently organising my schedule! There's always so much to do on campus in terms of academics, clubs, sports, social events and more. My planner helps me stay on track with my daily activities and helps me use my time well.
