In the classroom, Makeba Dorival was always inquisitive and engaged; she was there to learn and to help her fellow students. Professors described Makeba as "so nice" and a "very good student."
Makeba held leadership positions in both the Caribbean Student Association and in Stetson’s chapter of Psi Chi, the International Honor Society in Psychology, where she served as secretary in her junior year and as its president her senior year. Makeba's leadership led to the success of many varied events that group held during 2019-2020. Makeba believes the guidance provided by her professors has given her self-confidence.
Makeba's calm nature, kindness and organizational skills also will serve her well in her future career. Makeba starts the University of Central Florida’s Master of Social Work program in fall 2020.
