If you had a superpower what would it be and why? Having laser eyes is my top choice only because I can shoot laser as my opponent that decides to take my assigned unassigned seat in class.

My name is Angie Mella and I’m a transfer student from Miami, Florida. My favorite memory from back home is waking up to bachata music on the weekends while I wait for my mom to cook our famous Dominican cuisine of rice, brown beans and chicken also known as “La Bandera.” I decided to come to Florida State University because I wanted to find myself within students that equally wanted to be as successful. Apart from TLI, I’m a member of Lambda Alpha Epsilon, Alpha Gamma Delta and Student Senator for the College of Criminology and Criminal Justice.

If you had a superpower what would it be and why? Teleportation so, I could travel somewhere new every weekend.

I am Sarah Beadling and I serve as the assistant director for the Transfer Leadership Institute. My experience as a participant last year in the program heavily contributed to my sense of community on campus. So, I am beyond excited to continue my involvement in supporting incoming transfer students. Originally I attended the University of Minnesota Duluth and transferred to Florida State University at the start of my sophomore year. I came here for new experiences and opportunities to grow outside of my comfort zone. To help ease my transition, I joined the FSU running club and volunteer Tallahassee. I look forward to a new school year and meeting the new class of participants.












Name: Steshonia Davis

Position: Facilitator of Administration

Major: Actuarial Science and Economics

If you had a superpower what would it be and why? I would want to be able to manipulate time or time travelling so I could change my fate if I don’t like the outcome in the future. Also, I would like to be able to  travel back in time to complete missed assignments.

My name is Steshonia Davis and I am a Junior transfer from Broward College in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I am originally from Jamaica but moved to Sunrise, Florida in 2016. I transferred to FSU because of its great Actuarial Science program and also to grow independently. I joined Transfer Leadership Institute to be more involved in the school’s activities. This institute helped my transition of being in a new city by myself alot more comforting. Coming to FSU is everything that I expected and more!















Name: Technie Fabien

Position: Facilitator of Engagement

Major: Psychology

Year: Senior

If you had a superpower what would it be and why? It  would be the ability to read people's minds but to also to turn it on and off when I please.

My name is Technie Fabien and I am a Junior transfer student from Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW) in Fort Myers Florida, but I am originally from Immokalee Florida. During the Spring of 2018 I received my A.A at FSW and then transferred to The Florida State University in Fall 2018. I decided to come to FSU because not only would it would open up many doors to help build me as a student, but to also take risk and trust and believe that God will help build you and steer to the right path and people. Coming to FSU was by far the best thing I have ever done because it led me to many opportunities and experiences. It led me to becoming a member of a mentoring and volunteering organization called Big Sister, Little Sister, it led me to an on-campus-job, and most importantly it led me to TLI. Being apart of TLI not only helped with my experience on campus, but it also helped me connect and build many relationships with other transfer students who were in the same boat as me. Going through and successfully completing the TLI program, and now being apart of E-Board, I can help and give back to other transfer students coming into FSU.

I received my A.A. degree from Santa Fe College in Gainesville, FL spring semester of 2018 and Transferred to FSU Fall 2018 where I then became a participant in TLI.
