Nepaedee Doe has flown 5,753 miles from her hometown of Monrovia, Liberia to Bainbridge, Ohio in hopes of furthering her education and exploring the land of America! Nepaedee is a junior this year, and has had to adjust in many ways that us Bombers may not even realize. To understand what she is fully going through, and to give us all an idea about how Liberia is, I decided to interview Nepaedee!
Q: What’s the biggest difference between America and Liberia?
A: The weather and the class structure. It is around 75 degrees every day in Liberia, so this freezing weather is a shock. Also, in Liberia we sit in the same classroom all day, here we move around a lot more and see a lot more different people throughout the day.
Q: What do you miss most about home?
A: My family, my friends, and my school.
Q: What’s your favorite part so far of your 10 month adventure here?
A: I love Kenston, it is a friendly environment and I have met a lot of people that I will remember forever.
Nepaedee deserves a pat on the back for being so courageous while coming all the way to America on her own. I am privileged to be so close to Nepaedee, and I recommend you all to introduce yourself to her and get to know this smiley girl, too!
