Experience Academic Excellence


My professors, seeing how shy I was, gave me opportunities outside of class to teach me how to network. Now I’m active in cultural clubs on campus, learning more about my majors and myself. With the education and family-like support I found at WP, I’m taking my passion further, organizing a fundraiser off-campus to support my goal of creating a mental health program for local people of color.
