Stasha Malcolm

Attending:Cal State, Chico
Studying in Thailand (Academic Year)
Hi, my name is Stasha Malcolm. In high school, my father was diagnosed with Hairy Cell Leukemia, and at this same time, my grandmother was re-diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Although my grandmother passed away, my father is now in remission. Their struggles inspired me to chase my dreams and to never give up. I graduated as Salutatorian and was able to honor both of them in my speech. In order to offset my family’s financial burden from medical bills, I began working at local after school programs to pay for my tuition.

After an opportunity to visit Thailand for a short ten days, I have been anxious to return. With great thanks to FEA, I will be able to study abroad in “The Land of Smiles,” (Chiang Mai, Thailand) during the academic year of 2012-2013. I am excited to learn from a culture where tradition is more important than anything else, where people appreciate what they have, and where everyone smiles, regardless of their situation. My major is Graphic Design, and I will be working on my minor in International Relations while abroad. At Chico State, I participate in a choreography collective as a dancer. My other interests include photography, spending time on Oroville Lake, learning about cultural traditions, and working with kids.
