Year at UW: First

Hometown: Dallas, Texas

About me: Hi! I'm Bela, and I'm a first year student from Dallas, TX. I'm coming from a small talented-and-gifted high school, which is why the Honors Program appealed so much to me as a smaller community of peers within our huge university. I am currently undeclared, but am an intended Environmental Studies and Education double major, as I am extremely interested in the ways the environment & sustainability can be integrated into early childhood education. I live on-campus, on one of the Honors floors in Terry Hall. I am a member of QPOCA, the Queer People of Color Alliance on campus. Because I am coming from very far away, I am happy to talk about how to find a community when you don't know anyone, or what it's like to be an out-of-state student at the UW. Please reach out if you have any questions!
