Lizzy LeClaire, '18 – Global China Studies
Enlightenment is a funny thing. You never know when it’s going to hit you. For Lizzy LeClaire, the moment of truth came when she found herself the only non-Chinese person in her Shanghai yoga class. The teacher was giving instructions in Mandarin and Lizzy, who was born and raised in Boston, understood what she was saying. “I’d been practicing my Mandarin, but this was a real litmus test,” says Lizzy, who is majoring in Global China Studies in order to gain an understanding of the country’s educational system. “For the first time, even as I was twisted into a pretzel, I felt accomplished and ready to go beyond the classroom.”
Kalkidan Fekadu Eteffa, '18 – Computer Science
I was born in Addis Abba, Ethiopia to a mother who beat the odds in attaining both her bachelors and masters degree. From my childhood to today, she has been the strongest woman I’ve met. Luckily, both my parents ensured that my sisters and I grew up knowing that we could pursue any route we wanted. While my sisters chose to pursue careers in medicine and art, I chose the path of computer science. I often jumped around in difference sciences, first taken by the interactions between atoms and molecules in chemistry. But I later found that I enjoyed the interactions between people and computers more – especially machine learning. A program that improves itself as it gathers more and more data fascinates me. Unfortunately, Ethiopia doesn’t have much infrastructure for computer science and rarely uses data efficiently for development. I plan to study machine learning and possibly advance the use of data analytics throughout Ethiopia.
