Favorite college experience: While most opportunities to study abroad allow students to explore somewhere new to them, I got to study abroad in a place I spent much of my childhood coming back to—Samoa. Having not been there for years, going back as a college student gave me the chance to explore Samoa from an academic point of view, while at the same time, still being connected enough to know the significance of every learning opportunity I had there.
Favorite WA activity: Running around Greenlake
Main Attraction at UWB: Community. Being in a small enough environment to get to know others easily.
Advice for High School Students: Continue to invest in your learning. It’ll take you far.
