Jamiah Bennett
University of Connecticut
Major: Communications and Journalism
We're so happy to have Jamiah with us on the 2-Week Immersion program this summer! She is excited about all of the new experiences she will face by immersing herself in a culture that is very different than her own. Welcome aboard, Jamiah!
Which groups/sorority/organizations are you currently affiliated with?
On campus, I am affiliated with the Recreation Center and the Residential Life department as a Resident Assistant and the Recreational Center. I hope to get involved in more clubs this semester!
Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?
Oh my! I am not even sure where I see myself tomorrow. (Totally just kidding! Of course I will be on campus and going to class. 😊) In all seriousness though, I hope to be traveling the world learning about individuals who are very different than me, from all walks of life.
What are some of your bucket list items/places?
Well! After crossing traveling to Spain off my list (it’s been on there for 12 years!), I have traveling to Morocco, Egypt, and Kenya.
What is one of your proudest accomplishments to date?
One of my proudest accomplishments to date is getting accepted into and attending college. 🎓
If you could sit and have coffee with one celebrity, dead or alive, who would it be?
If I could sit and have coffee with any celebrity, I would definitely sit with Lupita Nyong’o. I would love to talk about her journey and experiences. Not to mention she totally knows how to have fun!
