Humans of Northwood: Ean Malay ’23 

I am from Exeter, New Hampshire, where there is not much diversity and not many interesting backgrounds. I grew up trying to play every sport I possibly could (swimming, soccer, hockey, basketball, baseball, lacrosse, ultimate frisbee, and tennis). I have always enjoyed sports, and that’s why my closest friends in my life are those that I have made through sports.”

“I came to Northwood to give myself another year to improve my grades, play soccer at a high level and figure out what it is I want to major in. Northwood has done all this for me and more—it has given me a place where I have been able to grow as a person. I feel as if I have finally started to become the person I want to become and I look forward to what progress I can make during college. In college I want to major in business and computer science, I hope to become a business data manager or something in that area. I also wish to take my soccer career as far as I possibly can.”

“I have always been told that I have a completely different personality than when I play sports, but I think since my time at Northwood, I have started to merge those two personalities. Hopefully into the best version of myself, but we will see how it plays out.”
