Senior Spotlights - Quincy Ponvert ’23

Quincy Ponvert

Major: Honors Music major, Honors Education minor, course minor in Latin American & Latino Studies

Hometown: New Haven, Conn.

Campus Involvement: Swarthmore Taiko Ensemble, Sexteto Strapatta tango ensemble (founder and bandoneón performer), Swarthmore College Orchestra, and more.

“At Swarthmore there is always too much to do and not enough time. It has taken me half of a decade to figure out that this is a beautiful thing, that it is possible to both be over-involved and take care of myself. Here, I learned to live in the extremes, to commit myself wholeheartedly, and to love intensely.”
