Strategic Planning Assistant Profiles, Oct 2022
Hadia Ingabire '26
I am Happy Hadia Ingabire. I am a first-year student from Rwanda, East Africa. Since Swarthmore College allows us to explore our academic interests during our first year, I took that opportunity to try out several courses across all the three disciplines. In other words, I am still undecided regarding what I want to major in. Outside of school, I love poetry and anything within the poetry realm. I am very excited to be part of the College’s strategic planning team because it is an opportunity for me to offer a student’s perspective as the College details and implements its goals for the next decade.
Jackie Le '24
My name is Jackie and I am from California. I am a junior majoring in engineering and applied math. Besides those classes, I enjoy learning about education and practicing new languages. In my free time, I like to dance to hip hop, write letters, and try new foods. I am excited to work with the Strategic Planning Committee because I get to understand and be a part of the administrative framework that shapes decisions and priorities at Swarthmore. As a student, I think it’s important that we’re also at the table for this strategic planning process.
Miao Peng '23
I am Mia from Shanghai, China. I am currently a senior with a major in philosophy and double minor in English and Japanese. As a literature student, I am naturally passionate about language learning. I have learned Japanese for four years and have recently started learning Korean. When I am not not busy reading old philosophical books by dead people, I enjoy cooking with friends, films, K-dramas, volleyball, and doing some leisure reading (more books)! I wanted to work with the strategic planning team because I believe that there is a lot that Swarthmore can and has yet to offer, and I am excited to be a part of this process and to see what the next few months hold!

I am so excited to be part of the Strategic Planning Committee because I get to be one of the members to design the future of Swarthmore in upcoming years.
