Graduation Year: 2020
High School Experience: I went to a secondary school in inner-city London. It was mostly Black students. It was a pretty good school where it was. There were seven grades in our school, so for years 7 to 11 there were about 125 people, then in year twelve there were about 100 people and then in year 13, there were about 60. I graduated with like 60 people in my class. It’s not that there is a drop-off, it’s that people go to different schools for the last two years. There are more options for secondary school the last two years.
Minor: Hispanic Studies and possibly History
Extracurricular Activities: I’m a part of the Charleston House of Interfaith Cooperation which is all about getting people of different religions and nonfaith to get together to speak about things going on in the U.S. or in the world. I’m also part of Model UN, so I’ve been to a couple of conferences with them.
Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience?
Yeah, Charleston was probably my favorite one to go to. I haven’t been able to go this semester because I have a class when they meet. It had a big impact because it really made me think about other peoples’ perspectives and religions. They did something really cool for me. Over the summer this a conference called Interfaith Youth Core and it’s for people who are part of interfaith groups at colleges from all over the US. Trinity flew me out from London to Chicago which was pretty cool. It was for two days in August and I got to speak to people from all over the US, so that was really impactful.
