Leo: I was in my chemistry class and my teacher
mentioned that we were going to have a surprise visitor from UCSC. Malika
Moutawakkil, one of the coordinators for COSMOS, approached us and gave
a fantastic, encouraging presentation. I immediately had a postive vibe
to except an application from COSMOS.
Monique: Malika actually showed up for two of my high
school classes to present COSMOS. She did an awesome job and I was so intrigued,
I asked for an application. She seemed very well informed and confident
about what she was presenting which made me very secure about applying.
