Resident Assistants of the Month – November

Dara Carney-NedelmanCentral Area: Massey Hall: Dara Carney-Nedelman

For the month of November, Massey Hall would like to nominate Dara Carney-Nedelman. Dara has gone above and beyond this month to devote bulletin boards as well as programming to focus on the diversity of our nation and this building. She was the lead person on an Egyptian night where authentic food was cooked, and traditional items and music were displayed. The Egyptian Student Association also gave a presentation. Dara got the idea from a resident and took the time to make sure the culture was accurately and responsibly displayed to the residents of Massey Hall. For those reasons, and so much more, Dara deserves to be RA of the month.

Annastashia BlesiWest Area: Morrill Hall: Annastashia Blesi

Annastashia has stepped up as a leader on staff this month. She is always helping with program advertisement for the building. This past month she took the initiative to plan a building-wide program that focused on educating students about various disabilities, and how certain disabilities affect people’s everyday life. She broke up residents into groups of five, and they were given a disability and tasked with performing normal daily activities with their given disability. Afterwards, she conducted a debriefing conversation with them about the activity. When there were challenged presented with executing the program, she brought them up in a constructive manner and was able to articulate herself, and hear her peers, so they could work together to execute the program. This is why we she deserves to be RA of the month.
