Feyona is a first-year biomedical engineering major from Aurora, Col., where she was a part of the first designated ADL "No Place for Hate" school in her district, implementing school-wide diversity lessons and events. She believes that her experiences and previous work will guide her work as an IA. But being an IA will help also her to become immersed in the Drexel community as a first-year student. Feyona hopes that through working at the Intercultural Center, she will be able to meet students from all different backgrounds and expand her knowledge about different cultures. Learning about the cultures represented on campus will allow her to understand health practices on a global scale, which will give her insight as she work towards her goal of research in the field of biomedical engineering.
Colette is an accounting major in her third year who is an active member of FUSE. She wants to work at the LGBTQA Student Center to do more for this community, get people involved and meet all different kinds of people.
Born in Senegal and raised in the Bronx, Wandiba majored in sociology in college and absolutely loved it. She always knew she wanted to work in the health field and when she found out about public health she knew it was the perfect career for her. She enjoys hands-on work, where she interacts with people from different backgrounds but going out and doing something about a situation that needs attention. She is hopeful that working at SCIC will provide her with the opportunity to work with people from a variety of backgrounds, be a support system for someone, grow from experiences and learn how to handle situations she may never have been exposed to.
