We all come from different cities, cultures, and just about anything else that can differ us from one another. We chose this university for many different reasons and Texas State unifies us all as one. Every single student makes an impact on our perception and adds to our identity as a whole. Nonetheless, we are our own great individuals and that is why I would like to shine light on all of the different faces that make up Texas State.
Meet Lauren Kuyateh. She is 20 year old Nursing major and a sophomore here at Texas State. I drew up various questions to ask Lauren, so we can get to know her a little more.
Daggs: Where are you from and what was your childhood like?
K: I am originally from London, England and moved to the United States when I was around 12 years old. I grew up in Killeen, Texas and my family has now relocated to Austin. I had a very active childhood. My grandmother always made sure I was involved in activities such as swimming and tennis to keep me busy.
D: Growing up, was college always in the works? Why or why not?
K: College was always a plan from the time I started grade school. My aunts and uncles all went to college, and my grandmother had their college graduation pictures hung around the house when I was growing up, so it was something I always knew I was going to do.
D: So you’re a nursing major; what are your tips on survival?
K: Sleep! I always make sure to get a least seven hours of sleep every night, especially before a big exam. It’s easier said than done given how difficult college can be, but making sleep just as important as studying for a class is key.
D: What is a typical night for you?
K: Throughout the week, I am probably doing some homework and watching Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix. My weekends are pretty laid back; less homework and more Grey’s.
D: What is your favorite aspect of Texas State/San Marcos?
K: I love the San Marcos River! I’ve gone tubing a couple of times, and it’s one of my favorite things to do. My favorite thing about Texas State would have to be the campus landscape; we have such a beautiful school!
D: If you could cross any item off of your bucket list right now, what would it be?
K: Skydiving. I’ve been wanting to do it for so long. My friends and family may think I’m crazy, but I am still going to do it for the thrill!
