Ravie Boungou '20

McNair Scholar

Major in Education, Minors in Education Policy and Dance

As a McNair Scholar, Ravie built on her own experiences in the classroom and studied home-school dissonance in Congolese immigrants.

Ravie Boungou '20 studied the dissonance between home and school life for Congolese immigrants in her McNair research.

Ravie's McNair research project, "Home-School Dissonance: A Disconnect for Congolese Immigrants" stemmed from her own experiences in the classroom as a Congolese immigrant in America. Each year, the McNair Program selects 10 sophomores who work with faculty mentors through their senior year to develop academic and research projects. The program prepares students for graduate and doctoral studies, and encourages research-intensive careers. 

At Knox, Ravie participates in Terpsichore Dance Collective, Harambee, and  InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. She is also a Resident Assistant and a Writing Tutor
