Why did you choose graduate school at IU Bloomington?

I enjoyed my experience at my BIG10 institution but wanted to get experiences in another place. The campus is very beautiful. The Black Graduate Student Association was also very welcoming and helpful in my recruitment and decision making processes.

What's been your favorite academic accomplishment since you've been here?

I did an advocacy project in which I addressed senior level student affairs administrators about the issues that are impacting muslim women, specifically those who wear hijabs. This was not only an informative project for me personally, but I think others benefited from the information presented as well!

What do you enjoy most about life in Bloomington?

Walking around campus in the Fall time is one of the most beautiful sites ever! I also love the trivia scene at some of the spots around town. Its a great opportunity to get out the house and kick it with friends.
