For this month’s graduate spotlight, I was able to interview 2009 Central Graduate Shouayee Moua. I am happy to report that Shouayee is still in college and has kept herself very busy. Here is a quick update from Shouayee.
1) What school are you attending?
2) What classes are you taking this semester?
I’m taking Introduction to Physical Science, Youth and Family Ministry, Foundation of Discipleship Ministry, Gospel of John, and Spiritual and Leadership Development, a total of 16 credits.
3) Are you involved in any extra-curricular activities on campus?
I am currently secretary for Hmong Student Fellowship and I am playing basketball for Crown College.
4) Are you enjoying college?
Yes, I am lovin’ the college life! Even the homework is fun when you find joy in it. If you fully want to learn then you’ll find joy in doing the homework, even when it’s hard.
5) Is college what you thought it was going to be?
I had an idea about what college might be like and I was kind of right. For example, I get harder homework, no doubt. I love the small campus, I feel like I know everyone. Everyone looks familiar and I just love the atmosphere.
6) What is a typical day for you?
A typical day for me is pretty crazy. I wake up at 6:30 a.m. to practice basketball with a friend until basketball season starts. Then, I take a shower and go to chapel or class. Usually after my first class, I head to lunch, go back to class, and work from 3-5 p.m. everyday. I clean ALL the classrooms with another co-worker. Usually I eat dinner around 6 p.m. After dinner, I do my homework until I finish and sleep whenever. That is a typical day for me.
7) Any advice for UB students?
Find a school where you are able to open up and get involved in school. Definitely make sure the professors care about their students. College is not something you want to miss out on. I believe every college student should love his or her college years. I can’t believe that it is already my sophomore year in college. I’m almost half way done. L Good luck with school and study hard because it all pays off in the end. Take care, UB! I miss you all! I hope I can come work for UB this summer!!!
