Celi Tamayo-Lee is one of those Evergreen students who seems to have more than 24 hours in her day. She has designed an intense curriculum for herself of full-time programs in Political Economy and Media studies; and rounds out her class work with involvement in a variety of other activities. She is an active member of the Asian Pacific Islander Coalition student group, a performer in the annual production of the Vagina Monologues, and can often be seen leading campus tours for prospective students and their families. She inspires those she meets with her intelligence, enthusiasm and energy.

The Admissions office asked us if we could sit down with Celi and document a little bit of her experience here, and we were happy to oblige. Celi spoke articulately about what drew her to Evergreen and how the unique curriculum model helped her develop both critical reasoning skills and confidence. We saw both qualities as we documented her this year; and we think that you will, too.
