The Fearless Underdog

Interview by Brianda Reyes ’14

While I do not remember the first time I met Tania Dias ’13, I vividly recall the first time she impressed me. At the beginning of the 2012–13 school year, Charri Boykin-East, then the interim dean of students, scheduled weekly meetings with Dias and me.

October 18, 2012
