Hi, my name is Kathy S. and I’m one of the ISA members.
As an international student from China, I have experienced a lot of confusions and struggles, but also fun, trying to “fit in and be myself”.
I’ve learned many valuable things through ISA discussions as well as events like Culture Shock and the sophomore identity retreat.
However, I feel like not many people actually take these important things into seriously and bring them into everyday school life. I also feel like we could do better on the relationship between the dorm and day programs.
I am running for this position because I would like to get more people involved in the activities I have highlighted and think more seriously about important issues.
I hope as more people realize the importance of their own identity, as well as these of others, people will be more willing to understand and and accept our differences.
