My name is Kara Whelply and I want to be your next Vice President of Academic Affairs. I am a junior majoring in interdisciplinary studies through New College with a depth study of global public health and minors in Chinese and Biology.
I learned to be a fighter from my mother. I’ve spent the majority of my life watching my mother overcome an abusive marriage and work two jobs to provide for me, while simultaneously raising me to be the woman I am today.
The Freshman 15 hit me a bit harder than it did most students – and much sooner. I came into this university with a plan; I was going to join a fraternity, play competitive soccer, and get involved with SGA.
