Centenary’s French program, and our fantastic professors Dr. A-B and Dr. Kress, have opened up my world in so many ways. My proficiency in the French language has given me so many fun opportunities, and Dr. A-B’s expertise in gender and sexuality, post-colonial and Afro-Caribbean culture has left a profound impact on me as a conscious, global scholar. I am currently a graduate student at UC Berkeley, getting my masters of public health, concentrating in global health and environment. Living in California’s Bay Area, I am immersed in a global, international community. I have had so many opportunities to connect with people through French language. I also was hired to work at a French Immersion daycare, which was an amazing experience. I love meeting new people who also speak French!
