#MyMessage — Isidore K. Amani

Meet Isidore K. Amani, a pre-med senior from the Ivory Coast.

Isidore K. Amani, or 'Izzy,' comes to Syracuse bearing with him the heart and soul of Africa.

The Ivory Coast, located in the western region of Sub-Saharan Africa, is where Amani calls home. His new home, however, is a continent of new learning experiences.

A senior pre-med major in the College of Arts and Sciences, Amani pursues knowledge in all fields of study. From religion and sociology to international affairs and politics, he is a lover of knowledge. In his spare time, he enjoys reading and watching the news.

Language was particularly challenging for Amani. As he encounters differences in language and culture, he strives to take away something new from each person he meets on campus.

 While Amani had trouble adjusting to life in the United States, he says the transition process has been a learning experience. Amani was forced to quickly adapt to a new way of life, but he says life tends to feel a little less foreign when his peers accept him as an individual seeking common ground.
