Where are you from, Addisa?

I was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, but I grew up in New Rochelle.

I am a product of an interracial marriage. My father is a holistic medical doctor and acupuncturist. My mother is a certified nursing assistant. I have an older sister who graduated from the University of Maryland with a BA in Dance and is currently going to school for physical therapy at New York Medical College. I also have a twin brother who teaches yoga and martial arts and is going to school for acupuncture at the New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. 


Tell us about the nursing degree you are getting.

I will be getting my RN-BSN.


Before enrolling at The College New Rochelle where did you study?

Before enrolling at CNR I was at Westchester Community College. I graduated with a liberal arts degree in social science.

What surprised me most about CNR are the class sizes. Most are really small so you get more individualized attention.



Why did you decide to return to school?

I decided to return to school because I realized what career I wanted to get into.


What has surprised you the most about CNR?

What surprised me most about CNR are the class sizes. Most are really small so you get more individualized attention.


What is your favorite course?

My favorite course so far is Pharmacology.


Do you have any favorite teachers?

My favorite teacher is Professor Miccarelli. He is my pharmacology teacher. He's great because his notes are very clear. He speaks slowly so you're able to copy  his notes. He has a great sense of humor, which is something I appreciate, especially early in the morning. I look forward to his class.


What are your classmates like?

My classmates come from all over, and we all have had a variety of life experiences. Some of us have been to college; some haven’t. We are of different ethnic backgrounds, as well as of different religions. Some of us are just out of high school; others have had jobs and are coming back to school to change careers. It is quite a United Nations in the School of Nursing. I have made great new friends here at CNR.


When do you expect to graduate?

I expect to graduate in 2009.
