“It’s only my first semester, but I have so much going on. When I’m not buried in readings and papers, I’m juggling the clubs joined such as Project Sunshine or Maleka Mag, while making time for friends in between. Since starting college, I’ve also been to the opera, plays and other places. Because Adam’s scholarship, I don’t have to worry about getting a job and having to pay for tuition. Instead, I can balance my academics and extracurricular activities and just enjoy being a college student.”
