For my interview, I chose to speak to one of my teammates who also happens to be my best friend. Nikhita Jacob is a Junior Biology major at Bowling Green State University. Although she is a native of Ann Arbor, Michigan, Jacob and her family come from a diverse background.
Her parents were both born out of the United States — her mother is from Barbados and her father was born in India — which caused her to grow up with a passion for diversity and assorted cultures, customs, and communities. Jacob is also a member of the We Are One Team (WA1T) Team Player Program on campus and, in addition, is a member of the Alumni Laureate Scholars.
