High School Experience: Private boarding school in Connecticut with a graduating class of 250 students. It was a college prep school, so there was a culture of going to college.
First Generation College Student: Yes
Major: Data Science
Minor: None
Extracurricular Activities: I’m a leader for the Global Ambassador Program, part of Black Student Organization, and [have a leadership role] in Columbia’s Data Science Society.

Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
The Black Student Organization was a great way to have a community coming in. It felt like a good way to relax, make friends, but also discuss the larger effects of being on a campus that is majority White. The Global Ambassadors program was a good place to explore and have conversations with people who have different identities than mine.
