Keilah Creedon ’14
During her time at Union College, Keilah Creedon majored in both math and history, learned Swahili, researched contemporary slavery, played in a chamber music group and studied abroad. She also joined with French professor Charles Batson to perform a baroque dance where the movements create geometric patterns on the floor.
“I often use math and logic to pick up dance steps. Those parts of my brain seem to work together,” she says. “It makes for a very rich day when I move between math and history and dance. That’s what’s so great about Union.”
Her sophomore-year study abroad in Tanzania sparked an interest in Africa, and she won a Fulbright scholarship to teach in Kenya after graduation.
“My long-term plan is to return to East Africa and work in international education and dance therapy, ideally for a non-governmental organization on issues of contemporary slavery,” she says. “Union has transformed my dream for the future.”
