High School Experience: I’m from Boston but was part of METCO so I went to a public high school in Westwood, MA with a graduating class of about 300 people. The demographics of the school were pretty similar to Union and there was a strong culture of going to college.
First Generation College Student: Yes
Major: Political Science

Extracurricular Activities: I play club basketball and I am part of Greek life but de-brothered last year. I also do some volunteering around Schenectady, I lead an S.A.T. prep session at the Kennedy Center with high schoolers from Schenectady and I’m part of the My Brother’s Keeper initiative where we mentor some teens from Schenectady High School.

Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Greek life has been a pretty big advantage to me. Although I am no longer a member, I created some pretty good connections while I was a brother. Also, some of my closest friends are on the club basketball team so I like seeing them a lot. Teaching S.A.T. prep has helped advance my career because I am [going into education] next year.
