The power of an arts and business degree

As an athlete in high school, Malakhai Pearson ’17 focused on sports and classwork, with little time for creative pursuits. That all changed during his first year at Bentley when his mother gave him a camera and Pearson found his true calling: telling stories with photos and videos.

He credits the new major and friendships with other like-minded students for encouraging him to pursue his creativity.

Teaching in classes with a diverse student body really helps facilitate broadening the students’ knowledge. I am very lucky to have classes that are diverse in cultural, gender, gender identity, race, religion and nationality.
