Triple major Micah M. transferred to ASU after his freshman year looking for a personal and academic reset. With help from the motivating environment and opportunities offered, he graduated with not one, but three degrees, in English (literature), French and political science; one minor in Asian languages (Chinese); and one certificate in international studies from The College. Learning multiple languages gave him a new mindset and the ability to embrace other people in other cultures, skills that will help him succeed in his next journey at Harvard Law School.
