Featured Adult Learners
Off-Campus and Non-Traditional Student Services (OCNTSS) works to welcome, incorporate, and promote non-traditional students in the campus environment. This includes recognizing those students who have taken a different path, taken extra steps, persevered over struggles or simply have a great story to tell about their academic and life journey. Recognizing the contributions that these students provide to NIU fosters their sense of visibility and advocacy on campus, in addition to encouraging a stronger presence on campus. These nominees will be considered for our annual Eli Whitney Award.

Kimberly was born in Schaumburg, Ill. Her family moved to her parents’ home country, Indonesia, when she was in elementary school. After high school, Kimberly moved to Singapore to obtain her Associate Degree.
She is fluent in English and Indonesian, and also speaks some Mandarin. Summers are often spent in Indonesia with her parents, where she teaches, and is a gymnastics and conditioning coach. Kimberly credits gymnastics as the inspiration for her self-discipline, her goal-oriented drive, and the focus she employs in her art practice.
As a creator and lover of art, Kimberly draws and paints in many styles and uses a vast media variety: pastels, oils, watercolor, chalk, photography, etc. She is motivated by many subjects, but is most intrigued with the human figure. Kimberly’s art has been recognized numerous times:
2009: Indonesian Embassy Caricature Competition in Singapore, First Place
2011: Feature in Pocket Magazine, 3rd Issue, Singapore
Kimberly looks forward to combining her passion for exercise and conditioning with a career in kinesiology. She also has every intention to continue creating art. Goal setting is imperative for her and her ultimate goal consists of owning her own health and wellness center.
Advice for fellow students: “Get through it! Eat well, sleep well, and exercise!”
“What you think affects how you feel and perform. Training your brain is as important as training your body.”
