Hello there! I’m Libby Hannon, a North Carolina native with a B.A. in Creative Writing and English, and an M.A. in English Literature. When I teach, I love fostering a love for Gothic literature in my students whenever possible (and I’m more than happy to give recommendations!). My hobbies include traveling, horror movie analysis, and spontaneous crafting. If you stop by my apartment, I’ll be more than happy to loan out craft supplies. I’m very excited to be a part of the Cottey community, and I’m looking forward to serving the Robertson residents!
I was born and raised in Sierra Leone – a society where women are minorities and their place is in the kitchen. I have always been passionate about education and striving towards greater things in order to make a difference. My journey at Cottey has been a life changing experience and I am glad I was able to be part of this noble institution. Being here have made me realize that educating a woman is educating a nation. I am proud of the young woman I have become and I know there is more coming to what I already have accomplished.
Before coming for college in the United States, I always thought that college is hard and scary and as an international student, I had the feeling that making friends would be impossible. My entire perspective about college changed the moment I got to Cottey. The community is inviting, everyone is interested in your success and the campus life is filled with so much energy and diversity. I made friends more quickly than I thought and before I know it, I knew most of the students living on campus. I am an environmentalist in the making, looking forward to saving the world. LET THERE BE PEACE ON EARTH…then and only then we can enjoy the fruit of our labor.
Hello I am Kundai Matara. I am from Zimbabwe, a small landlocked country in southern Africa. I am an International business major. Baking is one of my hobbies. I am very friendly and like sharing my experiences, so if you ever want to know anything about my culture or country, feel free to ask. Cottey is my second home – everyone is nice. I love my classes and professors especially business classes. Good luck to everyone for this academic year. See you around campus!
Hi! My name is Breanna Kelley and I am from Monett, Missouri. I am the oldest of five children! I have two sisters, two brothers, and two amazing parents. As I enter my second year at Cottey College I plan on graduating from Cottey with my Associates in the Arts and transferring to a four year school to major in Physical Education with a minor in Coaching. My dream and eventual goal is to be a college softball coach. If I am not singing my heart out in my room, you can typically find me at the softball cages or softball field! I am a member of the softball team, and I am also a member of Golden Key. Some of my favorite things to do in my free time are: watch Netflix, drink Dr. Pepper, hang out with friends, or go for a run. I love to laugh and have a lot of fun. I am super easy to talk to and love meeting new people! Don’t be shy come by and see me on the third floor of Robertson Hall in Indiana Suite.
