Last month I traveled to NY to meet Otto the Orange at SU, and had a great experience. The campus and people were awesome, the weather was perfect too when I was there.

I will be attending Syracuse University in the fall to major in broadcast and digital journalism at Newhouse, and minor in Mindfulness. SU is one of the only schools in the country to offer a mindfulness minor to undergrads. My plan is to figure out a way to put my two passions of journalism and mindfulness together somehow.

This would not have been possible without the Posse Foundation, and I’m so grateful to have been chosen as a Posse Scholar. Posse selects 10 students who have made an impact on the world to attend college together, to support each other. This is great for me, because I am going to another state where I won’t know anyone.

8 years ago, when I started on this journey, I never imagined that it would lead me here, but I’m thankful it has. I am especially grateful for all of you and your support. Thank you so much.

Wuf Shanti will still be a big part of my life. While I’m acclimating to my new normal, Wuf will become more of a family affair. My mom will step up and do more of the teaching and socials, my dad will handle the music and website, and my sister will start helping more too. She’s the same age now that I was when I started Wuf Shanti. Of course, she has plans of her own where Wuf Shanti is concerned, and I can’t wait to see what she does. Whatever it is, I know it will be something creative and fun.

I am excited for the upcoming adventure, and determined to enjoy each moment.

I hope your holiday season is a good one and that you have a healthy and happy New Years 2022.

In gratitude, Adam
