Tidiane Diop is a Woodsworth College student from Senegal, embarking on a double-major in Peace, Conflict and Justice and International Relations this year. A alumnus of the Munk One program, Tidiane is looking forward to learning from his professors and peers in the coming year.

One reason that Tidiane chose PCJ is the interdisciplinary nature of the program, which he has long been of interest to him. As a Munk One student , Tidiane saw that the Munk School is about trusting students’ abilities and instincts while accompanying them on their respective academic journeys. 

He looks forward to learning from professors who are experts in their fields and being surrounded by passionate students with different goals. Tidiane  believes work ethic and drive make all the difference when pursuing one’s goals. Moreover, PCJ teaches students active problem solving skills  regarding real issues rather than hypotheticals, thus effectively preparing students for the future.

In the future, Tidiane hopes to return to Senegal and be a leader in the socio-economic development of the nation.

A fun fact about Tidiane is that he developed a passion for cooking while living in a residence with no dining tall during his first year.
