The Core Curriculum

About the Scholars: Nigel Telman and Jackie Marchal

Nigel Telman, class of 2021, is pursuing Computer Science and English in Columbia College. He hopes that, through his submission, he has illustrated the timeless quality of music and words and their ability to connect with us across cultures. We may not have the same life, but our experiences on this earth inextricably link us.

Jackie Marchal is a member of the Columbia College class of 2022. She plans on studying Music at Columbia, and is a singer, songwriter, and producer. For the Dante inspired song ‘The Forest,’ Jackie produced the track and recorded Nigel in her dorm.
