Cruz, who arrived in the U.S. speaking no English, is part of the International Education Development Program and is focusing on bilingual/bicultural education with a geographical concentration on South America. Keeles is a Howard University grad who wants to use his TC degree to return to Howard as a psychology professor. King, who uses a wheelchair, is pursuing a degree in social/developmental psychology and is interested in researching perceptions, stereotypes and stigmas associated with disability. Norris plans to return home to Seattle after completing her Master of Arts in Higher and Postsecondary Education with the goal of working in development or admissions and transforming her knowledge into positive change when she reenters the workforce.
