Hey everyone! My name is Karl Anderson and I am a senior at Evergreen. Originally from Shepherdstown, West Virginia, I came to Evergreen straight out of high school. Since then, I have been studying International Relations and Economics, with a particular focus in Caribbean Studies, Food Sovereignty, and Political Science. Some of my previous programs include Caribbean Cultural Crossings, Caribbean Tourism, Foundations of Economics, Re-Interpreting Liberation, and Marxist Theory. As the recipient of the Jessica Kelso Memorial Scholarship of 2012-2013, I was able to travel to Trinidad and Tobago last year to conduct independent research on Trinidad’s role in the global food system, food sovereignty, culinary ethnography, and the economies surrounding all of those subjects. At the moment, I am in the 16 credit, two quarter program Alternatives to Capitalist Globalization, a program where we not only critique and analyze the history, culture, theory but also actively participate in imagining a new global order.
When I am not nerding out over my schoolwork you can find me experimenting with vegan recipes, enhancing my mixology skills, hosting various social groups, or all three at the same time in my lovely home in Olympia. I am happy to answer any questions about academics, study abroad, student life, or something else that might perhaps be teasing your curiosity.
Hi! My name is Sovay! I am originally from Tucson, Az. I am studying literature, writing, and opera. When I am not in class or studying I love to hike, run, climb, and sing! I am a student ambdassador at The Evergreen State College, and I love love love Evergreen. It is, in my opinion, the perfect school.
