Meet Student Athlete Ismanuela Denis

DSC_1871A native of Brooklyn, NY, Ismanuela “Izzy” Denis, is a junior soccer player at Trinity. Izzy is a Sociology major with a minor in Political Science.

1. What is something that has had a grave impact on your life?

I would have to say growing up in my neighborhood.  There’s a lot of crime and poverty in my neighborhood, and not many people have the opportunity to “get out”.  I was determined from a young age to rise above my circumstances, and leave my neighborhood to broaden my perspective on life.

2.  What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

I don’t have much free time between my internship, work, classes, and athletics, so the majority of it goes to sleeping and hanging out with my friends.  I really love to sleep!

3.  If you could have any super power, what would it be?

I would like to be able to read minds.  If I could read minds I would know exactly what everyone else what thinking, it would give me a leg up on everybody else.

4.  What do you find most challenging about being a student-athlete?

It’s very important to have good time management.  When you become an upperclassman and get into your major classes, are working, playing sports, and have an internship, you need to make sure you can balance all of your activities and keep your grades up.

5.  What home-cooked meal do you miss the most when you are away at school?

I miss my mother’s diriak djon djon ( Haitian black rice ) and plantains.  Every time I eat diriak djon djon, it reminds me of home.

6.  What was your first impression of Trinity?

Everyone was very welcoming, helpful, and made me feel at home.  Things in DC however were slightly different than New York, I was used to more of a “busy” environment.

7.  What is your favorite class you have ever taken here at Trinity?

Professor Rivers English 105.  When I came to Trinity I had a lot of trouble with my writing structure.  Professor Rivers helped me become a better writer; she still assists me today and challenges me to do better everyday.

Meet Student Athlete Asya Tucker

photo[1]A native of Heidelberg, Germany, Asya Tucker, is a junior soccer player at Trinity.  Asya is a Chemistry major with a 3.65 GPA who is interested in going to dental school and being in the Air Force. 

1. What would you say is one of the major differences between living in Heidelberg, Germany and living in Washington, D.C.

Everything (with a chuckle)! For one, the culture is very different.  Here, everything is based on convenience with no sense of punctuality, where in Germany, things are convenient, yet punctual as well.  Second is the speed limit, driving in the states is incredibly slow and there is way too much traffic. There is NO speed limit in Germany, very hard to get used to driving here!

2.  If you had one million dollars, what would you do with it?

I would save a lot of it (yes, I’m frugal). I would also use it to travel the world, see different cultures, and spoil my family.

3.  What is your most annoying habit?

I worry a lot, and when I worry, I bite my nails!!

4.  What do you find most challenging about being a student-athlete?

It is difficult to get all of my work done, but I have found that time management is the key for me.  At Trinity, as long as I have communication with my teachers and get my work done, they work with me.

5.  What was your first impression of Trinity Washington University?

It was GREAT!!  I played on a Junior College soccer team; we were beating Trinity but the team fought the whole way through the game.  The fans in the stands were cheering the whole time and I could just sense the school unity.   Now that I have transferred here, I am glad to be on the inside looking out.

6.  What is your favorite piece of clothing?

My hand woven, Istanbulian, wool socks.   I got them as a gift from a friend who traveled to Istanbul.

7.  What is your favorite class you have ever taken here at Trinity?

Would have to be Religion and Science: Crisis, Conflict, and the Transformation of Cultures, taught by Dr. Mary Lynn Rampolla.  It was such an amazing and interesting subject, a great class, taught by a great professor.
