PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It has been quite the college career for Villanova’s Jessica Wamala.
The senior is co-captain of the Wildcats women’s basketball team. She’s earned a scholarship after starting her career as a walk-on. The Milford, New Hampshire, native has already earned her bachelor of arts degree with majors in political studies, Arab and Islamic studies and global interdisciplinary studies. She’s now on track to graduate in May with a master’s degree in political science.
As if that wasn’t enough, Wamala was recently chosen as one of 32 Rhodes Scholars representing the United States. That means the opportunity for further study, all expenses paid, at Oxford University in England.
