Introducing: Jada Wiggleton-Little ’17

When the Dear World 2016 College Tour came to Davidson, Jada Wiggleton-Little knew exactly what she wanted to communicate through her portrait: “I chose to see life differently, to actively seek the good in each day. I chose to appreciate every blessing, big or small. Given the option, I chose to be happy.”

Anyone who’s encountered Wiggleton-Little on campus will attest to the authenticity of her statement. A philosophy major and medical humanities minor, she aspires to become a pediatric palliative care nurse practitioner. As president of the Black Student Coalition, a Strategies for Success mentor, vice-president of the Pre-Nursing Society, member of Upsilon Mu chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and
co-poetry editor of the Hobart Park Journal, she’s chosen to leave an indelible mark on Davidson.

The Union Board brought Dear World to campus this spring for a portrait and story sharing session. Photographer Robert Fogarty started the project in 2009, asking residents of New Orleans to write a “love note to their City.” More portraits are available at #DearDavidson and #DearWorld.
