Randolph Glee

Name: Randolph Glee (Ph.D. Candidate)

School: Clark Atlanta University

Major/ Concentration: Social Work policy/Administration

Degree level: Ph.D.

1.Why do you choose your major / concentration?

I chose Social Work because my country (Liberia) has suffered many years of civil conflicts. As a result of these conflicts, the academic, social and political fibers have been broken. To gain our post war status or get on path with other nations we need professional social workers, who will get into the communities to work with community dwellers on community projects. Moreover, Liberia needs professional social workers who will conduct evidence based research and present findings to parliament for better policy to help the vulnerable populations (elderly, Children, women, orphans, homeless, and disable).

Name: Varbah H. Sorsor

School: Clark Atlanta University

Major/Concentration: Chemistry

Degree Level: PhD Candidate

1. Why did you choose your major/concentration?

I began to like chemistry from high school. My high school teacher was so experienced and included real-life illustrations in his teaching. He worked with Firestone Rubber Company as a chemist. So, he taught the subject with such great enthusiasm. I always liked his class and made good grades at the time.

I remember him lecturing on the contribution of Marie Curie to science – radioactivity. He said this was a female with such high work. I got more interested because, I said to myself, I can do chemistry as well. I wanted to learn more and gain a better understanding of the various fields. My emphasis in polymer chemistry deepened when I started graduate studies at CAU. My advisor, Dr. Mintz is such a knowledgeable person, with his mentorship I am excited for this field.
