Nia Slater-Bookhart (‘19) is self-designing her major, focusing on history, international development, and education, with a concentration in comparative ethnic and racial policy.

Scarlet: What are your hobbies here at Clark?

Nia: I’m on the Peapod Squad. We do two shows a month and are going to ImprovBoston in a few weeks, where we compete with other New England schools. If we win we get a crown or bragging rights or something.

Scarlet: How long have you been on the Peapod Squad?

Nia: I’ve been on it for about a year now. I started freshman year.

Scarlet: Are you all pretty close?

Nia: Yes definitely, we work on bonding a lot, even outside of practicing. I just feel like if you want to do good Improv you have to have some kind of a relationship.

Scarlet: Are you involved in anything else on campus?

Nia: Yeah! I’m also Mentor Coordinator for All Kinds of Girls, for 8 to 15 year old girls, and it’s really exciting. It’s fun to work with women on Clark’s campus and get to talk with all the Clark ladies. I also do Spree Day co-chair with Michelle Young (‘17), so we’re planning all the Spree Day logistics and all that good stuff.

Scarlet: Can you let me in on anything?

Nia: We can do that after the interview!

Scarlet: Is being co-chair fun or just a lot of work?

Nia: Being co-chair is exciting. We’re pretty much just trying to make everybody’s day magical.

Scarlet: I heard you’re interested in doing YouTube videos?

Nia: Yes! I definitely want to do the usual makeup, hair, and health stuff, but I also want to talk about the really heavy topics too, and get conversation going on the YouTube community.

Scarlet: Do you have any favorite YouTubers, or anyone who particularly inspires you?

Nia: I would say the Buzzfeed videos, I get caught up in those, and those aquariums shows, so that’s pretty much just my YouTube intake at like 12 at night.

Scarlet:  What’s your favorite thing about Clark?

Nia: Clark is definitely a place where I feel like people can find a place. I’m from Florida, so pretty far from home, but it’s the people that make it my home away from home, and I have a really good support system here.

Scarlet: You want to give those people a shoutout?

Nia: Yes! I feel like my parents are going to read this so, shoutout to my parents, my sisters, my nephew, my friends – I call them my family on campus. Shoutout to you guys, you know who you are.

Thanks for the interview Nia!
