My name is Sibylla Chipaziwa, and I am a Zimbabwean student at SUNY Purchase.
As part of a class I’m talking in the spring semester of 2014, my Multimedia Tools professor, Tara George, requested that we start a blog on anything that interests us.
Having lived in five countries and not being a U.S. citizen, I couldn’t help but notice that there aren’t any events for international students at Purchase, aside from foreign language courses and study abroad programs. I decided to come out of my shell, and approach whomever I saw that may be an international student, just like me.
Each week, I will showcase a student and ask them some questions about their lives here and back home.
I hope you enjoy reading about some of these students as much as I enjoy finding some similarities with them, as diverse as our backgrounds are.
