My name is Grace Kendra and I will be a senior this upcoming school year. I am a Cultural Anthropology major with minors in Peace and Justice Studies and Leadership of Organizations. I am taking this class because of my interest in the topic and as a requirement for my major. Coming in with an undeclared major as a freshman, I took a variety of classes to help me decide what I wanted to do. As soon as I took my first Anthropology class, I was hooked. I knew I wanted to dedicate my life to helping and understanding others, and Anthropology was the perfect fit for me.
Outside of school, I have a variety of hobbies. The biggest is being the president of the Michigan State Triathlon Team. I, with my teammates, train year-round for the sport. We train for the Olympic distance, which is a 1500m swim, 24 mile bike, and 10k run. I love the challenge the sport brings and working harder to achieve goals I set for myself.
