I’m James Kelly, a sophomore here at UD, and I’ve lived here in Newark my whole life. I’m an operations management major with a minor in journalism. I picked up writing for a car website as a hobby during the pandemic and I haven’t stopped since. I host The Engine Block on WVUD’s The Basement, and I’m a Tier-2 BHLP member. My favorite movie is Ford vs. Ferrari, if I didn’t make it clear already that I love cars.

I am Adam Kerzner and a junior at University of Delaware. I am a biology major and I am from Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. I enjoy exercising, playing and watching sports such as soccer and basketball, and hanging out with my friends.

I loved every second of the trip and I can not wait to be a site leader for this upcoming year.
