Humans of IDP #118: Anna ’25 & Claire ’24

By January 5, 2024 May 23rd, 2024 No Comments

Happy Friday! Today’s #HumansofIDP are our last two EDUC 2610 facilitators from this semester: Anna Hooper ’25 and Claire Ceske ’24. Here's what these two have to say about IDP and one another!

Why IDP?


IDP has been absolutely transformative for me. It provides me with constant opportunities for challenge, growth, inspiration, and connection. I have grown to love the IDP community and its support for learning and improving, and the strong sense of purpose that being a part of this program and doing this work gives me.


It would not be an exaggeration to say IDP has completely changed my life. Learning about human connection has encouraged me to be more authentic and vulnerable in my interactions; and understanding social identity and dialogue has empowered me to engage in otherwise stressful interpersonal conflicts. I could go on and on, and anyone who knows me knows I already do.

What's your favorite thing about your co-facilitator?


Claire is a beautiful combination of wit, humor, compassion, and conviction. She is a loyal friend, a lover of shenanigans, and a constant teacher and learner. To know Claire is to be grateful she is in your life. I am so happy to have met Claire and even more lucky to call her a friend.


Anna is one of the warmest people I know. In our many conversations over soup I’ve grown so much — whether we’re talking about social identity visibility, brainstorming ways to better engage students, or nerding out over bugs. I most admire that Anna really puts her full energy into everything she does and is not easily deterred. I am so grateful to IDP for giving me this lifelong friend.
