Meet Stephann Dubois, a computer science senior from Haiti.

On Jan. 12, 2010, Stephann Dubois thought the world was ending. He was volunteering to help younger students in his native Haiti when chaos erupted — it turned out to be a magnitude 7.0 earthquake. Dubois jumped out of the two-story school and walked 30 miles back home.
