Her good humor and empathetic demeanor make her so easy to talk to, and her brilliant mind makes bouncing off ideas so much fun! Twyla deserves this shout-out for being such a professional scholar, dependable friend, and overall amazing human being!”</p><p> “Twyla is an excellent student. In the classroom she raises important questions for her classmates to consider. As a Head RA, she thinks about how best to support the residential life of students. Her senior thesis work in psychology on mother-child interaction has shown what a promising young scholar she is.”</p><p> “<span data-sheets-value="" data-sheets-userformat="">Twyla Barkakoty has thrived at Beloit, carried by her curiosity, hard work, creativity, and cheer. A Psychology major and Music minor, she has sung in the choir, taught music to preschoolers and 3rd graders, created sound and art installations, and served her peers at Commons. Always ready to dive in, Twyla stays positive and gets stuff done! We are thrilled she may be staying for an honors term to complete her own psychology research on children and mothers.</span>”</p></em><div class="m-3 clearfix"><a href="/commencement/senior-profiles/index.php" class="d-inline-block pull-right"><i class="fa fa-refresh fa-2x"/></a></div></div></div></div>
