“I think my experience at W&J taught me how to interact with others more successfully, while also challenging me academically in order to prepare me for life post-graduation,” he said, noting that the connections he made with friends and professors, coupled with encouragement from his parents, kept him motivated to succeed.

What are you most proud of doing while at W&J?

Firstly, I’m proud of passing all my classes during COVID. Secondly, I’m proud that I pushed myself to work hard every year, even when it was difficult. As a Congolese student who had never experienced an American College, it was not easy for me. Many people thought that I wouldn’t be able to make it, but I did. English is my fourth language, but I had many professors who believed in me and helped me, like Dr Manzari, Dr. Leet, and Dr Buba. I am very grateful for them, the staff at W&J, and my friends.
