An Inspiring Student Story
Updated: Apr 7, 2021
I love having an opportunity to interview students—so many of them show incredible drive and passion at a young age. This Wesleyan student, Fitzroy "Pablo" Wickham '21, grew up in a single-parent household in the Jamaican countryside and chose to attend a small liberal arts university in the United States to nurture his dual interests in neuroscience and theater. I spoke to him when he had just been awarded the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship, under which he plans to study neuroscience at Oxford University (UK). Later, he plans to attend medical school and ultimately hopes to establish his own neuroscience research laboratory and practice in Jamaica.
