“I’ll be working until my fingers don’t move in a nursing home,” said Shaneeke “Chuey” Bascoe.
Bascoe is a 21-year-old biology major with a concentration in health professions who hopes to become a physician’s assistant. She plans on keeping herself busy this summer.
“Being that I want to go to PA school, I have to have a lot of hours just for the application process so I’ll be taking care of that this summer and I have been doing that the last couple of summers.”
Bascoe serves as the vice president of B.O.N.D. and the junior representative for S.G.A., and is also a member of P.O.W.E.R. and El Progreso.
Bascoe’s desire to help others was heightened recently over the winter break.
“I went on a service trip to New Orleans to help out with the aftermath,” Bascoe said, “and it changed my whole perspective on life and really incites me to be more involved with charity work. I believe that I am human first and foremost and so it is my duty to help others in need.”
When asked what she enjoys doing in her spare time, Bascoe responded, “I’m that weird person who loves to walk around campus late at night for no reason. My sad existence, what I can say?”
That being said, she also enjoys reading books, particularly psychological thrillers, mysteries and a certain magical franchise.
“My favorite series of books will probably be the ‘Harry Potter’ series,” Bascoe said, “and I’m a big fan of Dan Brown and any sort of book that plays with my mind and I’m not sure how it ends.”
Bascoe described her music taste as eclectic and that she listens to almost every genre of music. On top of that, she wants Lauryn Hill to release a new album.
Her lifelong goals are, for lack of a better word, unique.
“I want to be a really rich and famous rapper who ends up on everybody in the world’s top five dead or alive list,” Bascoe said. “I want to sell over 500 million albums and singles over my whole career and be very involved in charity work. You gotta shoot for the stars. We only have one life to live.”
