A flyer for Honors Interest Communities
Honors Interest Communities create a space for Honors students with similar academic and social goals to learn and mingle. Each IC is led by a small group of mentors that includes Honors College members and UNT faculty. The mentors host events throughout the semester based on community members' inte​rests.
All Honors College students are welcome to attend IC events, regardless of major or field of study.

Biochemistry major
My name is Cindy Ngo and my pronouns are she/her. I am a first generation student majoring in biochemistry with minors in biology, math, and photography. Although my interests in art and science seem divergent, I have a deep passion for both and hope to find a way to combine them in the future.

I am excited to be an Honors Interest Community Mentor because I love connecting with and advocating for students. When I’m not doing schoolwork, I enjoy making playlists on Spotify, hammocking, and photography.

Political Science and Broadcast Journalism major
I am an international student. I come from a small South Asian country, Nepal. I am pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Broadcast Journalism. I have always had a dream to study in American university as I was fascinated by the idea of “American Dream”. My American Dream is to have a talk show of my own. I enjoy talking to people and exploring life and culture. For me, travelling around the world and exploring the beauty of places and people is a major goal, which I am determined to accomplish. I also enjoy learning about international politics and I plan to be involved with international political institutions in near future.

As I am an honors student, I believe that the Interest Community is a platform where I can build communication and leadership skills. Moreover, I take it as an opportunity to work together and bring constructive ideas to life. In addition to it, meeting new people, building connection and fostering knowledge and skills are also my motivations as an Arts Interest Community mentor. Therefore, I wanted to be the part of the Honors Interest Community, and I am very excited to contribute my part.

Pre-Studio Art major
I wanted to be part of the interest community because I wanted to get involved on campus, meet honors students with similar interests, and find opportunities for how being an honors student could benefit me as an art major. I’m currently studying communication design on the user experience track, and in the future I hope to work on design for sustainability or any kind of human-centered design. When I’m not doing schoolwork, I enjoy reading, listening to music, and being outside!

Biology major
Hello! My name is Lexi Cannata and I’m a Biology major on the pre-med track. I’m planning on attending medical school after UNT in hopes of becoming either a neurologist or a psychiatrist. In my free time, I enjoy watching shows on Netflix and spend way too much time on TikTok. I also enjoy playing Pokémon Go around campus.

I’m excited to be a part of the STEM interest community. I hope that I will be able to meet many other STEM majors and make lots of new friends through the community. I also want to make sure I do this for others as well - it’s always good to have STEM friends!

Biology major
I’m a first generation student pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Biology with a double minor in chemistry and psychology. I am currently applying to medical school for the year of 2021. I wanted to become a STEM Interest Community mentor to share my knowledge and help medically driven students strengthen their application and provide them with ample experience for when they apply to graduate school!

Biochemistry major
Hi everyone! My name is Catherine White and I am a Biochemistry major in the Forensic Science program. I am excited to be a part of the STEM Interest Community because I will be able to plan events and more ways for everyone to get involved. My plan is to one day work in the FBI as a forensic specialist and coordinate with police departments around the country, or wherever I end up. I also love music and creating art!
