Hello! I thought it would be a good idea to tell my readers a bit about myself before starting on my journey abroad. My name is Diamond, and I am from the Bronx, NY, though I grew up in St. Andrew, Jamaica. I moved to The States when I was nine years old. Since then I’ve been living with my mom, and more recently my little sister. Here’s a photo of us!
I am currently a junior sociology major attending Hamilton College, located in central New York. At Hamilton, I have been involved in several clubs and organizations like the Black & Latinx Student Union, the Voices of Color Lecture Series and the DJ Club. Being a part of these organizations/clubs have allowed me to explore my interests while learning more about issues affecting me and other students like me. I have also learned a lot by occupying different roles in these organizations ranging from secretary to co-president. I’m also a sprinter and a jumper on the track & field team. I compete in the 100m, 200m, high jump, and triple jump.
Stick around to learn more about me through my blog posts!
