- Who was your first Wesleyan crush? Katherine Facteau in fifth grade.
- What is your most embarrassing moment? When I was younger my uncles used to mess with me and my brother by “pantsing” us sometimes. So I always thought that was just a normal thing to do. So one time we went to Dairy Queen with a bunch of our friends. Since I thought “pantsing” people was a perfectly normal thing to do, I decided to do it to one of my friends. Instead of everyone laughing at me like I thought they would, I got a stern talking to from my mom as everyone just stared at me like I was crazy (including the other customers at the DQ). I now know that “pantsing” people in public is frowned upon.

- What is the theme song to your life? “Huntin’, Fishin’, and Lovin’ Every Day” by Luke Bryan or “Water” by Brad Paisley.
- If you could be any faculty member, who would you be? Why? Mr. Stromie, because he really loves what he does and he always seems to be in a good mood.
- If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you want to have with you? Three knives.
- What do you hope your life will be like in 10 years? Hopefully, I’ll be just out of med school and starting my own practice.
- Assuming you had 24 hours to live, what would you do with your remaining hours? Fly to Australia and go scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef.
There are many great clubs offered at Wesleyan. One of the most diverse clubs is the Mosaic 7:9 club. It started three years ago at the request of two former students, Adaku Onwuka and Sheridan Davenport. This club comes together to celebrate diversity.
Jason Sheer, the faculty sponsor, said, “The name of the club, Mosaic 7:9 comes from the idea that we, like a mosaic, are a community of difference, and it is the difference that makes the community beautiful.”
The other half of the name comes from Revelation 7:9, when John saw many different people from many different nations, and they were all worshipping the same God.
“The name is a good reflection of why I personally care and why this matters at Wesleyan- I want to be a follower of Christ and this is the kind of community Christ is preparing for us,” said Sheer.
This year the club kicked things off with piñata festivities on the quad, but it is never too late to join. Mosaic 7:9 club meets once per month during lunch, along with the occasional leadership meeting. This is a time for students to plan the discussion for the next lunch meeting. This club hopes to diversify Wesleyan, and so far they have done an exceptional job.
Senior Sophia Kim is a participant of the club and she said that she hopes “the club will bring out different perespectives on how to benefit from diversity in Wesleyan.”
