My name is Rose Mina and I am from Kenya. I just completed my sophomore year and I am studying Finance and Mathematics.
My experience at Hofstra has been great. What I love most about Hofstra is the education experience. The professors are very committed in their work and they are approachable. What I learn in class is easily applicable to real life. Moreover, the class sizes enable me to have personal attention with my professors.
I also love my school because it has many opportunities for students to be involved and thus become well-rounded students.
I am involved in different clubs such as the African Student Association, HINT (Hofstra International) and for two years I was a Pride Guide. I am also a Global Mentor, and my role is to mentor new international students and help them in their adjustment to the new school and country.
All the above co-curricular activities have enabled me gain valuable experience on how to relate with people. I am also growing as a leader. At the end of the 2016 spring semester, I was humbled to be named Sophomore of the Year due to my involvement on campus. I am excited for what the remaining half of college has for me. I like challenging myself and Hofstra is giving me the platform to face challenges and growth experiences that are shaping me to become a leader who will hopefully bring change to society.
