Why Vanderbilt

It seemed like a place that would challenge me and help me grow while providing a support system that would ensure my success after graduation. The endless academic and extracurricular opportunities were a top reason for my choice. Also, the message of inclusion and diversity really spoke to me. The effort put into this campaign made me feel that Vanderbilt would be a place where people would care about my well-being.

Nilaja Amari is an African dance troupe that strives to expose the Vanderbilt and Nashville communities to African culture through dance. I've loved being a part of Nilaja Amari because it's such a welcoming community of dancers who cheer you on at all times. Also,Nilaja has helped improve my dancing skills.

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

My favorite class right now is General Psychology. It's been a lot to take in but the topics we've covered are fascinating and have encouraged me to learn more about the science of human behavior and the mind. This class has made me realize that we're all not so different.
