Congratulations to Jyohomson Dawadi, a 2019 graduating senior earning a B.A. in Philosophy with a Physics minor and a B.S. in Physics with a Math minor.  He has been accepted into the University of California – Historically Black Colleges and Universities (UC-HBCU) Initiative 2019 Summer Program.  The program is set to take place in Santa Barbara, California and at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, Greece.

During his time at Howard University, Jyohomson was greatly impacted by professors like Dr. Brien K. Garnand and Dr. Charles Verharen, whom he said challenged him in the classroom and helped him reach new heights academically. Jyohomson has served as a student ambassador for Dr. Brien K. Garnand’s “Greek Civilization” course.  He said that it was the least he could do to give back to Dr. Garnand for preparing him to receive entry into the UC-HBCU Summer Program.

As a proud Nepalese citizen, Jyohomson says that young scholars from his country strive for acceptance into Howard University and that he is truly grateful for his college experience here. According to Jyohomson, Nepalese students enrolled at Howard are very thankful for the opportunities the university extends to international students. The Howard University Nepalese Student & Alumni Association (HUNSAA) is the organization through which these students stay connected.

After graduation Jyohomson will attend the UC-HBCU Summer Program and plans to attend the University of California to pursue a Master’s degree in Physics or Philosophy. 

Three other Howard University students were accepted into the 2019 UC-HBCU Initiative Summer Program:  Cyerra Haywood, Aiesha Muhammad, and Jacquelyn Chin.
