Sophie Ippolito found inspiration through her work with @ncstatewellrec. "Fitness is very important to me. The two people in this photo grew to be my closest friends and coworkers. At the gym, I was there to work on myself and also to make friends."

After Kali Fillhart earns her undergraduate degree in general anthropology this weekend, she plans to move to Boston where she will pursue a job in the nonprofit sector or as a political organizer. She also plans to continue playing music and writing, and says she aspires to be a singer/songwriter/drummer/poet/freelance writer who changes the world.

At NC State, Fillhart has been involved with the @ncsuwomenscenter, @windhover_ literary and art magazine, @park_scholarships Program and @ncstateuhsp.

โ€œThe Scholars Program really broadened my horizons my freshman and sophomore years,โ€ Fillhart said. โ€œOne of the events inspired me to take a gap year and travel the country, which foundationally changed who I am as a person. Iโ€™m a glutton for experiences, and the scholars program truly supported my desire to learn throughout my entire college career.โ€
Congrats to Sasha Pereira, Matthews Medal winner and soon a 2021 graduate! ๐ŸŽ“ ๐Ÿ….

This weekend, Sasha is earning an undergraduate degree in zoology. After graduation, she plans to enter the workforce for a year or two before enrolling in graduate school, and this fall she will work as a research technician for the Wyoming Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit in Jackson, Wyoming, next to the Grand Tetons. In that role, she will assist in a project studying the role that ground-fed streams play in the reproduction of Snake River cutthroat trout.

At NC State, Sasha has been in @ncstateuhsp and has conducted extensive undergraduate research in topics like aquatic ecology, environmental justice and equity in environmental education. She has held leadership roles with the Student Fisheries Society, Environmental Student Association and Service Raleigh Planning Committee. She is also in the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program, a two-year scholarship program for underrepresented students with an interest in environmental conservation and diversity, equity and inclusivity.

โ€œAs a STEM major, having the opportunity to learn about the human dimensions side of conservation through Honors seminars like โ€˜Nature Writing in North Carolina and Beyondโ€™ has been an invaluable experience that will benefit me in graduate school and beyond,โ€ Sasha said. โ€œMy participation in the UHP has taught me the value of incorporating interdisciplinarity into all components of the research process, from brainstorming ideas to drawing conclusions from collected data. It has also facilitated my personal and professional development as an agent of change and furthered my commitment to making education more accessible through the formation of authentic, collaborative partnerships with community organizations.โ€
