African American studies and Asian American studies Prof. Nitasha Sharma was chosen to give the Last Lecture for the class of 2014.

Sharma will speak at The Cubby Bear on Wednesday, June 18 at 7 p.m. She said after hearing about the opportunity in the past, she is looking forward to the experience.

“I’m really excited about it,” she said. “I’ve heard about it before. I think I was nominated a few years ago but wasn’t ultimately selected so I had heard about it and thought it was very exciting to have a lecture in a bar.”

Sharma added she is excited to be able to send off the class of 2014 due to the close relationships she has created with many graduating students.

“I’m really excited that this is the specific year that I got elected to do this. There are so many amazing students that I’ve actually known from their first and second years who are now graduating,” Sharma said. “I think that this kind of forum will be the perfect one for me to send them off —  both the class as a whole but also for the specific students that I’ve really kind of grown with, grown to love and to really respect.”
