Incoming first-year student dreams of changing the world
RELEASED: June 12, 2008
Interested in a combination of biology and international studies, Bramblett found that Centre provided her every opportunity to fulfill her dream of helping others live a good and meaningful life.
After graduation in 2012, Bramblett wants to join the Peace Corps, with the desire "to better people's lives—and I mean the type of 'better' that involves getting a meal everyday, not the new Louis Vuitton."
Last summer, Bramblett visited Malawi, a small nation in Southeast Africa.
"I absolutely fell in love," she says. "I had always felt a draw to the country when I was younger, but once I actually visited the lands and interacted with the people there, I knew it was the place to be." Bramblett will be returning to Malawi this July.
Bramblett will be participating in the Bonner Program at Centre, a scholarship program that promotes and provides volunteer opportunities for the betterment of the community, nation and globe. In addition, Bramblett will also play softball and is interested in joining the Centre Christian Fellowship and PAWS, a student organization supporting animal rights and involvement.
