Wake up, head to the gym at 6am, go to breakfast
Nde’s favorite thing about WPI is the variety of clubs and organizations available to students and the fact that there is something for everyone. In addition to serving as an Engineering Ambassador, and being involved in the National Society of Black Engineers and intramural basketball, Nde is president of the Black Student Union (BSU).
As president, he says his goal is to promote cultural diversity on campus. He organized the organization’s first-ever fashion show on campus, which raised over $500 for Worcester African Community Education (ACE), an organization that assists African refugees and immigrant youth and families. The second show quickly sold out, more than doubling its size from the previous year.
Just as gratifying was Nde’s IQP experience in Windhoek, Namibia, which he says is “the most rewarding educational experience I have ever had.” As part of his project, he worked at the Namibia University of Science and Technology on a team of four from WPI to promote the debut of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) at the university.
After graduation, Nde hopes to work in an operations role at a manufacturing company. Long term, his goal is to inspire underrepresented youth to succeed academically and professionally, and to positively impact the community.
