High School Experience: Public high school in Boston, Massachusetts with a graduating class of about 86 students. There was not a culture of going to college

Major: Government
Minor: Hispanic Studies
Extracurricular Activities: I’m a representative in The Student Government here, I’m a member of the Black & Latinx Student Union (BLSU), and I have a [leadership position] with The Brothers organization.

Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
I think The Student Government has had the biggest impact. It’s helped fuel my passion for policy-related work and working directly with people. It’s taught me a lot of jargon and how processes work at the administrative and executive levels. Also, a lot of time is spent on budgeting and debating, so I think that’s helped me work on my communication skills and be more confident in my beliefs. They’ve helped transfer those into pragmatic policies on campus.
