Humans of Northwood: Tomas Restrepo Gaviria ‘21 

I am a postgraduate from Medellin, Colombia. This is my second year at Northwood and I am a soccer player. Northwood has been a great experience for me. Ive been able to meet interesting people and learn from many different cultures. At the same, time Northwood has allowed me to play and develop in the game that I love without dropping my academics, and that is something I value very much and will be forever grateful for.  

The current situation with COVID has impacted muniversity plans. Though truthfully it has helped me to stop thinking so much about the future and start focusing more on the present, doing and working as much as I can with the things that I can control, and I certainly think that this is the best thing I can do.  So, my plans are not very clear yet…maybe college in USA? Colombia? Seek pro soccer career? Travel? I don’t know. I just want to enjoy the process and see what comes…but I’m sure wherever I end up, this Northwood experience is going to be in my heart. And I’ll be grateful forever.
