Rossy Brito Trinidad ’14: Never Be Afraid to Ask Questions

By Timmera Whaley'15 on February 10, 2014

Rossy'14: Dancefest

Sociology and Spanish

Kent, CT

Carribean Student Association (CSA) and Colgate Dance Team

What is one piece of advice you would give to a first year student?
Never be afraid to ask questions in any circumstance in life, not just in college. It’s completely fine to be confused about something but always ask for clarification. There is no such thing as a stupid question, so ask away.

What is one class that has significantly altered your perspective?
I took Basic Acting with Simona and Adrian Giurgea, during the Office of Undergraduate Studies’ Summer Institute program. I believe it truly allowed me to be myself. Basic Acting took me out of my comfort zone, which is something I have had to do many times here at Colgate since that class.

What is a leadership position you have at Colgate?
I’m the dance choreographer for a Caribbean dance group on campus (CSA). I have been leading the group for a year and a half now. We practice once a week to prepare for Dancefest, which happens at the end of each semester. Being the choreographer for this group is a wonderful experience, and I hope to continue leading this wonderful group of dancers.
