Although Dijonee’ grew up in Baltimore, she didn’t fully appreciate all that the city has to offer until she entered college. For Dijonee’, the best thing about going to college in Baltimore is the diversity of the colleges and the students.
“I love that students from literally everywhere attend college here. And it’s easy to meet students from other campuses; some of my closest friends are from MICA, Towson, Goucher, UB, UMBC, and Hopkins.”
Dijonee’ has an internship with the Baltimore Collegetown Network, She supports the Collegetown LeaderShape program, which helps connect service-minded students from Baltimore-area colleges and universities to develop leadership skills and visions for the city. She works to promote Collegetown LeaderShape through events, social media, and presentations to students.
When she wants to meet up with friends, Dijonee’ goes to Station North. It’s a neighborhood where she can see art, theater, and dance performed and created by area students. “The vibe of that area is totally chill and laidback. It’s a place where you can be yourself and come as you are.”
