Hello! My name is Enkhjin Enkhbold. I am a freshman from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, majoring in psychology. I am interested in psychology because the human mind fascinates me. I would like to understand human behavior better to be able to help those in need. After graduation, I plan to attend graduate school and eventually pursue a career doing research within the field. I am very passionate person who loves being outdoors, exploring, and adventure.
My name is Gloire Bayeba and I am a junior majoring in economics with an international politics and policy concentration and a minor in women’s and gender studies. I was born in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and raised in Gabon. I am interested in critical global issues affecting women daily. In the future, I see myself working with those who will be uplifting Africa and will be working on expanding young African women’s rights. To be able to achieve this goal, I would like to become a United Nations ambassador so I can represent my country in order to draft laws that protect all underrepresented and misunderstood women.
I am Murtaza Sharifi, an international student from Afghanistan who is majoring in economics and political science at Berea College. I have worked at the Integrated Marketing and Communications Department at Berea College as tour guide and video editor prior to joining the Office of Academic Vice President. I attended entrepreneurship training through the Entrepreneurship for Public Good Program during the 2012-2013 school year at Berea College and was an Action-Partner with Oxfam International Youth Partnership Australia from 2010-2013. This partnership is a global network of young people working for peaceful, and sustainable social change within their communities. I was also member of the Afghanistan Young Leaders Forum from 2011-2012, which is a Friedrich Ebert Foundation initiative dedicated to the promotion of international dialogue and social justice. In the summer of 2013, I co-founded A Villager’s Hand, an economic empowerment initiative to help traditional artists, especially women, sell their handmade crafts globally.
I like to travel and take lots of pictures. I like to read, go on long drives, and get lost on the road, and then struggle to find my way back. The fun is always in the adventure.
