Kevin Vanderspek, born in Rumst, Belgium, is attending his first year at Utah State University Eastern. Vanderspek came to Utah when he was 2. He attended Copper Hills High School in West Jordan where he was part of the debate team. “Debate is probably the most educational thing a person can do. It requires your investment into understanding different perspectives, to see the other side of things, and to think critically. It allowed me to be better at research and how to cite things. I gained things like that from debate.” Vanderspek is successful on the debate team at Eastern.

When I first met Scott Odekirk four years ago in my high school debate class, I was unaware of how much an impact the man would make on my life. Immediately I looked up to him and he became a mentor to me and the rest of the class. He sculpted us into philosophers and progressives. Thinkers and writers. I am the person I am today because of him. Despite being part of the debate team under Coach Odekirk for two years, I never got to know who he truly is. I saw glimpses, however, of his life when his wife Desaray would help coach us and also with the birth of his child.

As the snow melts and the air temperature rises, students are only thinking of one thing. Springtime is near, and with springtime comes every student’s favorite time spring break. In planning spring break students have many options. They could stay here and catch up on homework, they could go home and spend time with family, or they could participate in a life changing service opportunity known as Breakaway.

What if you were told there was a secret society threatening the privacy of people everywhere… online. This mysterious collective has the potential to find every dark secret you have ever emptied from the “recycling can” on your desktop.  You might say something like: yeah, we have all heard that before, so what’s new? Or you might be scared of the cyber-space graves rising up from there not so restful sleep. What you should know before you throw away this paper is that someone is always watching. Every password, website created or blog you post can be unlocked.

I’ve spent a lot of time writing articles and answering questions over the past few years and if anything Ive written gives an insight into exactly who I am you may have gleamed that I can be a passionate person. If you follow me on Facebook you get a dose of my passion nearly daily, sometimes multiple times a day thanks to our science denier in chief irritating me. But I recently watched something that moved me so profoundly that I’m not sure how to express myself accurately about the experience.

She still enjoys being active and outdoors, however, as a full-time-sophomore student with two jobs, is busy but motivated. She enjoys psychology, anatomy and phlebotomy. These classes push her to reach her goal of graduating this year and someday working as a nurse, possibly a nurse midwife.
