What is your major/minor?
What year in school are you?
I am very good at sewing and hair braiding. I like to bike. Along with English, I can speak and write in Yoruba (Nigeria) and Korean. I love learning languages and I know a bit of Spanish and French too. I am not an outdoor person but if it means being around friends and family, I am all for it. I play the recorder.
What do you do outside of being a busy student?
I take care of the family. I hang out with my friends. I gym sometimes, but I eat more than I gym!
How many semesters have you been facilitating?
Just one. This is my first.
Which courses do you facilitate for now, or have in the past?
What are your short-term and long-term goals, and how does SI (Supplemental Instruction) relate to those?
My short term goals include passing this semester, helping out as much as I can in school and at home, making more friends, and going out more. I hope to break out of my comfort zone and take chances. My long terms goals include cherishing every college memory I get to make, keep long lasting relationships, get influenced by people positively and also influence people positively, be the best I can be as a sister, a daughter, family, and a friend, and to help as many people I come across that need me.
With SI, I am able to make the college memories, make friends, stand in front of people and shake away the fear of stage fright, learn more and more, be myself, and develop my leadership skills to help people.
What is your favorite SI moment?
Noisy classroom when nobody pays attention to me, and at that moment they are all communicating with each other and helping each other understand. The power of momentum during the session brings a smile to my face.
What have you gained from being an SI facilitator?
Knowledge, strength, happiness, and friendship
What study tips/techniques do you have for students?
Never postpone studying. Always go over your notes the same day you have that class. Take notes you can easily go back to and understand.
What do you like/what excites you about the material you SI for?
The way everything connects. It is biology. Everything makes sense apart but together they are fascinating tower of awesomeness.
What has been your favorite collaborative learning technique (CLT) that you have done in your sessions?
Having everyone pick terms from a bag and matching it up with the definition on the board. Everyone gets out of their seats, ask each other for help and clarification before attempting the questions.
