A new blog column “XYZ with Q” is now live! Stories from you, with you, for you.
After my first year in the Benton Scholars program, I feel that Benton Scholars are not just good students by common standards. They are a vibrant community of global thinkers and leaders who dare to think outside the box, embrace challenges, and be the change they want to see. Genuinely, I want to know more of them, know more about them, and more importantly, share their rich perspectives and insights with the larger community.
That’s why I am starting a blog column called “XYZ with Q.” Every two weeks, I will meet up with a current Benton Scholar or alumni and do an activity (XYZ) of their choice—along with an interview. From outdoor rock-climbing to DJ-ing, these activities will help me know my interviewees better and provide new angles to their personalities in real life. Through these meaningful interactions and conversations, I hope to use my personal voice and the blog to help scholars incorporate their unique experiences and insights into topics of discussion and issues of concern that we all share in common.
