How has Dickinson prepared you for life after graduation?

I feel I am a better critical thinker, a better writer and a more complete person overall after having attended Dickinson. My study abroad experience was formative in learning how to travel and expose me to different cultures and I owe a lot of that to Dickinson's program. This particular kind of liberal arts education gave me the confidence to try different things and really challenge myself.

What are you most anticipating about your career or post-graduate pursuits?

I'm still unsure of what I want to do long-term. My current employment plan is based on a one-year contract in order to see how I feel about living in East Asia, teaching, or living abroad in general. I plan to consider a master's degree or Ph.D. more seriously this year. Given that the world is still reeling from COVID-19, I don't expect things to work out in a traditional way for me, so I'm trying to be creative with my plans.

What are some of the defining moments of your Dickinson experience?

Definitely studying abroad in Bologna, it's one of the coolest cities in the world and I learned so much. Also, being able to attend different talks hosted by the college were very important to me because I come from a rural area that doesn't get a lot of attention from the academic world. Overall, I just really appreciated being in such a stimulating, intellectual environment.

Kyra Ramos

Majors: educational studies, Italian studies, international studies
Hometown: Cumberland, Rhode Island
Graduate: George Washington University
Field of study: international education

How has Dickinson prepared you for life after graduation?

Dickinson has prepared me for life after graduation as it has developed my problem-solving and self-advocacy skills. While being a Dickinson student, I have been pushed into so many different fields of study, organizations on campus and social groups, and have learned so many valuable skills from the people around me and my environments. The liberal arts aspect of Dickinson has made me who I am today. As I am graduating as a triple major, a member of an athletic team, a member of a sorority, a member of an educational honor society, a student employee for CCLA, the ROTC house, the peer tutoring program, a Dana research assistant, a global ambassador and an employee for a local Carlisle elementary school, I have been exposed to so many different types of people and spaces and learned so much about myself and so many other backgrounds. This space has made me a more well-rounded, versatile, and compassionate young adult, and helped me to define what I hope to bring to my communities outside of Dickinson. I have advocated for myself to obtain internships and reach out to alumni to learn more about what they do and that is a valuable skill that I will take with me.

What are you most anticipating about your career or post-graduate pursuits?

I am most excited to continue my education that I have started here at Dickinson in my graduate program this fall. This space has made me want to continue learning after graduating from Dickinson, as I have been inspired by many of my professors to commit to work I am passionate about. I know that the work I have done here will inform me what I do after graduating, and for that, I am very excited.

What are some of the defining moments of your Dickinson experience?

The most important part of Dickinson to me has been the relationships I have made with my peers and professors here. The community at Dickinson is one unmatched by many college campuses, it is warm, it is personal, and it is so supportive. My peers have taught me so much, and I have made lifelong friends here. Additionally, my professors have been such positive and supportive role models and bring so much insight and intelligence to spaces here at Dickinson, I am so much more informed and well-educated because of them. I would have to say one of my most defining moments came from my study abroad experience. I have never felt so comfortable being myself as I was living in Bologna, Italy. I was challenged academically, while also personally managing myself financially and mentally while living in another country. The growth I saw within myself and my peers was so inspiring and have led me to push myself and continue to always grow since returning. It has also shaped the path I am taking after Dickinson as I am pursuing a degree in international education, in hopes of returning to teach there one day. Another defining moment would have to be joining Delta Nu my first year at Dickinson. Coming from an all-girls school background, it was really imperative that I have a similar all-female space during my undergrad experience. The females in Delta Nu not only gave me a home, but also introduced me to so many different identities of females and each individual in the organization in my four years here has taught me something valuable. I would not be the woman or scholar that I am today with this group.
