Diana Deng

Hello! My name is Diana Deng. I am a rising sophomore majoring in comparative literary studies. I am from Beijing, China. During my spare time, I enjoy walking around the old alleys behind my neighborhood and writing about the people living there. I like books because they document the individuality of life and history. I am excited to continue on as a One Book ambassador and share my thoughts on this year’s selection, How the Word is Passed, with the Northwestern community.

Hi! I am Wilma Opokua Tay, a rising third year and an international student from Ghana. I am majoring in Economics and Psychology with a minor in Data Science. At Northwestern, I love to take walks by the lakefill and spend time with friends. In my free time, I visit interesting tourist sites and try out new restaurants in Chicago. I am involved with the African Students Association, Womxn in Economics, International Students Association, Arch Society, Lambda Theta Alpha, and Academic Support and Learning Advancement. This year, I look forward to engaging in deep discussions and participating in fun activities with members of the NU community as we learn together from Clint Smith’s How the Word is Passed.
