Hello! My name is Miriam, and I am very excited to meet you. I am American and Nigerian, but I lived in Nigeria all my life before moving to the US. I am currently a rising senior at Haverford. I am a music major, and have spent the last semester of college in Vienna, Austria. ON campus, I am involved in a cappella, Haverford Christian Fellowship, and of course ISO.

Courtney Asare '15
Hello! I am Courtney Asare, a rising junior and International Studies major. Though I was born in Boston, Massachusetts and currently live outside Philadelphia, my father is from Ghana and I lived there for five years of my childhood. I currently work in the Mailroom and the Deans’ Office and was an ISRP last year as well. In having spent a significant part of my childhood as an international student in Ghana, I’m really excited to help international students adjust to life abroad and here in Haverford and to meet everyone! If you have any questions or would just like to contact me, send me an email!
Hiba Dhanani '14
Hi! My name is Hiba Dhanani. I am a senior Anthropology major who is concentrating in Middle Eastern and Islamic studies. I'm also following a pre-health track and have interned in community health development the past two summers. Last semester I studied abroad in Istanbul, Turkey. It was an amazing experience! On campus I work in the admissions office and the bookstore, so you can probably find me there. I love exploring Philadelphia and the towns around Haverford, so if you're looking to get off campus let me know! During the week, you can find me in the CPGC cafe, lounging on the green or in the INSC. Let me know if you ever have questions or just want to hang out!
Hina Fathima '15
Hi Frosh! I am Hina, a rising junior in political science. I am from Bangalore, India and I’m learning to enjoy living in cold weather. I love Haverford, especially during the spring when the colors are so bright and everything pops out. In my free time you can find me catching up on Bollywood movies, the Mindy Project, exploring Philly or reading books. My goals in life seem to change so fast that I can’t keep track of them. Right now I am looking forward to studying abroad in Morocco, but, hard as it is to choose, I am equally interested in going to Turkey, England and Ghana!
Deborah Leter '15
Bonjour! My name is Debbie and I’m a Franco-American who was born and raised in the beautiful city of Paris, France. I am a Junior studying Anthropology and Peace, Justice & Human Rights – and I love it! When I’m not busy writing papers about cultural relativism or reading about ethics, I enjoy debating with friends, counting the number of stars in the sky, taking pictures, eating Indian food, and drinking absurd amounts of coffee. You will often hear me talking about social justice issues, sandwiches, my obsession with back rubs, and how I want to explore the world.

I like to bike, explore my surroundings, do community service, and admire Haverford's arboretum. On campus I am am a member of the ISA Leadership Board, participate in ALAS events, and Quaker Bounce. I am looking forward to working in the International Students' Office and assisting the international and multicultural community in any way that I can.

Bruce Willis '16
My name is Bruce and I have a Greek, American and British citizenship. I was born and have lived in Greece my whole life until coming to college. I enjoy doing sports (especially those related to the water), like exploring new places and finding adventures to go on. As for academics, I am not certain, but believe I will study Physics with a minor in Environmental studies and Theatre. From there I hope to work with renewable energy sources.
Sarah Wingfield '15
Hello, my name is Sarah, I'm a rising Junior at Haverford, I'm from England and I love drinking tea. It is absolutely fantastic to have been given the opportunity to be an ISRP this year and I cannot wait to meet you all. Quite unusually I arrived at Haverford last year as an exchange student on a study abroad scheme from the UK, but loved it so much here that I decided to stay. My reasons for staying are numerous; Haverford is a singularly wonderful community full of fun-loving, hardworking and caring individuals - but it also really feels like home. As an ISRP I hope I can help you feel as at home here as I do. See you soon!
