To begin my name is Rhondalyn Woodard
but I am affectionately called “Woo” by family, students and faculty (where I attend). I am a Junior with a 3.61 grade point average; pursuing a degree a Liberal Arts degree in the Religious Studies/Comparative /Philosophy department. If I could earn a living – as a scholar/teacher I believe I would change the world’s perceptions of globalism. No man is an island and I espouse that philosophy. Considering myself a social activist, involved in my community with a particular focus toward literacy, child advocacy, and women’s issues I hope to bring awareness and education especially to Third World countries. Nothing compares to the fulfillment I receive from reading and researching. I can become engrossed in a topic of interest and exhaustively research the most banal subjects with abandonment. Since childhood, the studies of religions and culture have been my fascination. My family was amused when I informed them at the age of eight that I would become a missionary. My fascination – has been and is to discover a greater understanding of the universe and its people. Specifically, I plan to change people’s perceptions of themselves and to still and relieve suffering. Because of my interests, I have embraced a monastic philosophy. I envision myself, studying abroad and in the process immersing myself in other cultures, and deepening my personal and academic knowledge. After studying abroad, my options would include working for a nonprofit organization either state side or abroad. In the long run, I envision writing a book of my journey.
