What is the most embarrassing song on your iTunes? Barbie girl, yeah, I should probably go delete that now! 
You’re from Rwanda. What was it like moving to the states? Was there any thing that particularly surprised you?
Moving to the US was pretty exciting.  I stayed in New York for the first few weeks until I had to start moving through other states, and then I got to see the imperfect sides of America that I had never imagined that would exist, like the homeless. Also, seeing obese people was a big shocker. I had never seen super big people in my life before.
Describe your ideal Sewanee day.
My ideal Sewanee day would be a Saturday afternoon when the weather is about 70 degrees (not too hot or cold) and, of course, a day when I’m not loaded with a lot of homework so I can get to spend the day outdoor enjoying the beauty of our campus.
