Introducing Rochelle Cecil, Seva Call Intern - Seva Team Hello all!

I’m Rochelle and I’ll be writing numerous blogs for you this summer, so I thought it only fair to introduce myself. I don’t want to be that awkward kid in the corner who randomly says things but nobody knows her name, you know?

Okay, first thing’s first.

Starting September 2, I will be going into my final semester (yay!) at Houghton College. I know, you’ve never heard of it. It’s in a hamlet — not even large enough to be its own town — in the middle of Western New York. Your questions: What’s a hamlet? What’s Western New York? Wikipedia knows both.

What do I study, you ask? Well, it’s a mouthful. Ready for it? I’m a Communications major with a Visual and Media Arts concentration, as well as an English major and Writing minor. Basically I read poetry and novels, write a ton of papers, and spend an exorbitant amount of time in Photoshop and Final Cut Pro. And I love it. I’m also heavily interested in gender studies and the impact of new media in society.

On to second-rate things. Umm….Home! Yes, you’ll love home. Know why? Because, I’m from Kansas, and there is no place like home.

Alright. Glad we got that over with. Now, to clear up a few other things:

Kansas is a state, not a city, or a county in another state. It’s a state. Again, Wikipedia if you don’t believe me: In case you couldn’t tell, I like Wikipedia. It’s got such a great history and really encompasses the idea of big data and online social communities…I’ll stop rambling, but if you want to know more, I wrote a giant paper about it! 🙂

Kansas is also not covered in corn; that’s actually Nebraska. We have wheat.

I don’t have a dog named Toto.

I don’t have ruby slippers.

I didn’t grow up on a farm.

I don’t say “ya’ll,” though I do say “C-ment” instead of cement, “ruff” instead of roof, and “pop” instead of soda.

I have seen a tornado — more than one actually.

Level three information, aka fun facts:

I love reading. Romantic and Victorian literature is my favorite. I’m currently obsessed with Elizabeth and Robert Browning’s love poems, and I’m in the process of rereading The Twin Towers.

I run often and I will run a marathon! Eventually. I’m determined, and you can’t stop me.

And, I recently cut off 20 inches of my hair to donate it.

I’m quite excited about being a Seva Call intern for the summer and writing blogs for you! Stay tuned to check out some awesome upcoming content (especially from me).

Welp. I think that’s all folks! Thanks for reading and I’ll see you next time.
