Cheikh is a senior at Connecticut College studying Government and Global Islamic Studies with a minor in Arabic. His passion for politics, governmental structures and a desire to make positive change not only led him to his major, but he was able to land some impressive and exciting internships!
“My experience with UNRWA is unprecedented compared to anything I have done for my post grad plans, I experienced working in a professional work setting, as well as learning more about UN’s role in international politics. My internship experience motivated me to write an honors thesis exploring funding cuts to UN agencies by member states (Thesis currently in works)” – Cheikh Gaye, Connecticut College ‘19

As you know, the college admissions process can be very stressful for low-income, first-generation students, especially if they are undocumented and we want to make things a little easier. Tina Meetran, a CV alum and current College Access Advisor is creating an undocumented student guide where she will be compiling the must-know knowledge of the process and making it accessible to everyone in a clear and concise way! Find out more about the guide and process below.
We hope you will join us in welcoming Shontay Delalue to the College Visions team! She is the Vice President for Institutional Equity and Diversity at Brown University and we are ecstatic to have her as one of our newest CV Board Members!
Here is what she has to say about College Visions:
“CV is an extremely important resource to the community. The college process can be daunting – especially for those who are the first in their family to attend. CV goes beyond college access support to ensuring CV students who are enrolled in college receive support as well. A first-gen college student can waste a lot of time and money in their first year trying to figure out how to navigate college. CV recognizes that the promotion of college enrollment, persistence and graduation results in ending cycles of generational poverty and in turn builds an educated workforce that can bring systemic change back to their communities.”
