Hello everyone! My name is Dejah Smith and I am a graduate of East Carolina University. I dedicated my studies to both the hard and social sciences and enjoy learning more about the natural world and behaviors of people. In my free time, I enjoy writing poems, gardening and spending time with friends/family. Within NYLI, I am a member of the Non-Profit track which provides insight into the functions of business and networking. NYLI has positively changed my life and enhanced my leadership skills. If you are interested in joining, I say go for it! This program has so much to offer young adults and you will be welcomed with open arms! Good luck to all!
