Your favorite...

Professor Claudena Skran is my favorite because she goes beyond the expectations of a professor and has become a good friend.

My favorite class is Contemporary Native American Women. This class challenged me to understand the meaning of brave spaces and educated me on cultures that I wasn’t aware of.

I just love the community at Lawrence. I especially love the international community; we do well to look out for one another.

I have so many but if I had to choose it would be the daily interactions with friends that have become family.

Ayomide PhotoWhy did you decide to attend Lawrence?

I decided on Lawrence because I wanted to be part of a close knit community.  I also knew that I would be able to explore different subjects in order to have a diverse background.

What are you studying? Why are you studying this?

Economics and Innovation & Entrepreneurship (I-E). I want to understand how the world works through the lens of economics and also to push the boundaries to explore the innovative mind.

How have you benefited from donors while you are at LU?

I have benefited significantly from donors because my attendance at Lawrence would not be possible without their support. I have been on a couple field experiences, like one to Jamaica, and those wouldn’t have been possible without their generous donations. I am very grateful.

What are your plans after Lawrence? And how is Lawrence helping you get there?

I am not sure yet about what I want to do after Lawrence but I know that the education I am receiving has provided me with a broad skill set, so I will have multiple options once I graduate.

How has being a student at Lawrence impacted you?

The liberal arts education, although very demanding, has pushed me out of my comfort zone and sculpted me into a well-rounded individual.  I was terrible at public speaking, but today I’m as confident as you can imagine and Lawrence did that.
