Congratulations on deciding to attend UWB. My name is Ladan Ansari and I am from Iran. I will be a fourth year student at UWB this upcoming year majoring in Community Psychology.
When I’m not in school I spend my time working and volunteering to give back to the community. Currently I am involved in the Community Based Learning Research program (CBLR) where I get to apply what I learn in the classroom to the community. In adition, I enjoy playing soccer with the other Orientation Leaders and cannot wait for the new Student Activity Center to open up. I enjoy traveling and exploring different cultures especially different foods. I love healthy eating and cooking and I will always come up with weird remedies for everything. In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking, decorating, and hanging out with my family. New challenges excite me and that’s why I really enjoy extreme sports.
The two things I love most about UWB are the diverse campus and my professors. My advice to all the new, transfer and exchange students is to use this time to explore and network. Remember you are all here for a reason so make great memories. Get out of your comfort zone and meet new people, join new clubs and organizations and just have fun. I am excited to meet the incoming students and to make this a great year.
