George Asare-Frimpong

George Asare-Frimpong

George is a sophomore intending to major in Accounting. He is Ghanaian, born and raised there for the majority of his life and he has been in this country for two years. He enjoys soccer a lot - both playing and watching, and playing FIFA. A fun fact about George is that in Ghana, everyone is named after the day they were born and since he was born on Sunday, he is called Kwesi. Joining ELASP as a freshman helped him easily adjust to the new community and meet people with similar goals. Attending college in a country you’ve been in for less than a year can be frightening as you do not know what to expect – that was George’s experience. But ELASP helped him easily fit in and make some lifelong friends. It also helped him because of the advice that the Peer Leaders offered. George is looking forward to sharing all that he has learned through ELASP and helping to make your transition from high school to college as easy as possible. One piece of advice George has for the incoming freshmen is to have a plan for the semester and academic year and execute it.

Divvya Seerani

Divvya Seerani

Divvya is a sophomore in Bauer who aspires to graduate with a double major in Marketing & Entrepreneurship, with a minor in Finance and Sales (through the PES program). Currently, she is a Bauer Senator in the Student Government Association, as well as an Ambassador within Bauer.

Divvya was born and raised in Houston, Texas, and enjoys learning more and more about what the city has to offer. It’s one of the main reasons she enjoys being at UH so much! That, and being close to family; however, after undergrad, she wishes to move from her suburbia to either Downtown Houston or NYC. When taking a break from school, she enjoys spending time with friends and keeping up with the NFL (Go Texans!).

Although most of her friends were made outside of ELASP, this program gave her a place to solidify her attitude of being comfortable in her own skin. Being a part of ELASP was an extremely rewarding experience for Divvya. And as an incoming Peer Leader, she looks forward to sharing her story and her amazing first year experience at UH. Not only has she found a niche here at UH, but most importantly, she has discovered and continues to discover so many new things about herself alongside her cougar family. With that, she hopes to encourage incoming freshman to go all in during their first year, like she did. Although four years seem like a long time, she believes that they go by much faster than you can even imagine. College should be some of the best years of your life so freshman year is the perfect time to start out on a clean slate. Come ready to make mistakes and learn from them so you can better experience the years to come!

Annaliza Suerte

Annaliza Suerte

Annaliza is an accounting major, born and raised in Houston; however, she studied abroad in the Philippines for a year. She enjoys traveling, food, adventure, and quality time with friends and family. Thanks to ELASP, she was able to meet friends who she can now call family. Coming from a small high school with 40 students in her graduating class, to UH with over 40,000 students, it became difficult for her to adjust to an unfamiliar environment. ELASP helped ease the transition as she bonded with diverse groups of people over one similar goal: become successful business professionals. As a Peer Leader, she looks forward to building connections with the ELASP students and watching them build connections amongst each other because it is essential to succeeding in the business world. ELASP is a great way to network early on in a person's college career. In addition, college is about expanding your perspective, learning more about yourself, and growth. Thus, I advise the incoming students to get out of their comfort zone. Take advantage of UH's diversity and talk to people originating from countries all over the globe. You'll immerse yourself into different cultures and see the world through various lenses.
