Da Zhane’ Sinclair ‘18
Hometown: Chicago, IL
Future Plans: Own a non-profit organization
Da Zhane’ Sinclair says the University of Illinois Springfield “feels like home” and the friends she’s made on campus are like family. Sinclair, an accountancy major, is a resident assistant (RA) on campus and mentors fellow first-generation college students as part of the Necessary Steps Program. As an RA, Sinclair regularly plans social events to help her fellow students feel welcome. Being an RA has taught her many lessons about communicating with others, crisis mediation, event planning and budgeting for events. Following graduation from UIS, Sinclair would like to open her own non-profit that helps women and children.
Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
