    Read about Amber, Eli, Faye, Jack, and Tamar's experiences at Luther!

A Brief Introduction

For starters, let me introduce myself. My name is Tamar Tedla. I am originally from St. Paul, Minnesota. I have three younger siblings ond one adorable cat. My parents are from Eritrea, a small country in East Africa. They have lived in America for over 20 years. I am so lucky to have them as my parents and blessed to have learned so much from them. 

I attended high school at Woodbury, where I was very active in theatre and music. I participated in musicals, speech, and choir throughout my high school career. Although I found so much comfort in performing, I found that what I liked most about high school was the people I met. Meeting new people and creating deep and meaninigful relationships made me incredibly happy. It wasn't until my summer before my first year of college when I figured out what I wanted to do with my life. I decided to major in social work so I could continue to make relationships with others along with helping those who need it the most. 

Here at Luther, I am still majoring in social work along with a major in sociology. With sociology, I am able to better understand how different cultures and societies work and have a better grasp on human behavior. I am also very active on campus, which allows me to learn so much and meet so many amazing people. I am very excited to see where the next few years at Luther will take me!
