Aztryd Lima

Spanish Education Major, class of 2022
Immediately when I stepped on the campus it felt like home, like I just fit in. However, the moment that convinced me Doane was the place I needed to be was when I got to sit and talk with a professor. I met with her and when we sat down she asked me, “what is your end goal?” I told her I wanted to teach abroad and immediately she began to plan how my future would look if I chose Doane. I realized that Doane cared about my future success not just in my college career, but even further into my future, no other university cared as much Doane.

The two characters, Puck in a pink skirt and floral corset with crimped brown hair and Oberon in a white tshirt and black vest studded with buttons and pins and long blonde hair, give each other a fist bump. The two stand in front of a neon purple set, with bouldering handholds leading up to a doorway in a wall.
