The International Peer Mentors for the 2017-2018 school year are excited to begin working with all of our wonderful students. Learn a little more about two of the eight new IPMs below!
Hady Flore Mafeugang Kougang (Cameroon)
Dream Job: Neonatal Nurse Practitioner, because I love the cute little tiny human and really enjoy seeing them go from a premature state to fully functioning babies.
Why she became an IPM: I became an IPM to help students while sharing and learning new cultural backgrounds. I believe that diversity is what makes the world beautiful and interesting, and understanding this makes the Earth a better place to live.
Why she chose Shoreline: Shoreline is the only community college with a university’s standards and facilities. Teachers, whose teaching techniques are effective, are also great and available. Furthermore, Shoreline is well equipped with facilities that ease student life, especially international students.
Come talk to Hady if you need a friend!! And if you love health related movies or shows. She would love to learn about your country, what makes your origin unique, and to learn your language!
Nannapas “Ploy” Muenprasitivej (Thailand)
Major: Food Science
Favorite Foods: Pad Thai, papaya salad, curries, and noodles
Shoreline CC Clubs/Activities: Just Dance Club
Why she became an IPM: I would like to help other international students when they need help and also be able to work with many people from different countries. Since we only live once, I want to explore and gain more experiences about working with other people. Not only is it helping me prepare for the working life, but also will let me know my strengths and weaknesses.
Advice for students to be happy and successful at Shoreline: Don’t be afraid to ask for help. It’s normal to make mistakes because it is what everybody has done. We can learn from it.
Come talk to Ploy if you love to do active activities (such as bungee jumping), or want to do a study group for chemistry or biology!
