Graduation Year: 2021
High School Experience: I went to a public school in a very small town in Vermont with a graduating class of about 110 students. I would say about 60% of us were on the track to go to college. There was a lot of poverty at my school, so I think a lot of people couldn’t afford college or never saw it as an option for themselves.
First Generation College Student: No
Major: Biochemistry – started as biomedical engineering but changed to biochemistry
Extracurricular Activities: I’m very involved in the Rochester Symphony Orchestra, which is really cool because it’s a combination of students and community members. We have undergrads, graduate students, faculty, some alumni, and some people that live in Rochester.
What kind of time commitment is the orchestra?
The orchestra meets every week, usually on Tuesdays, from 7:30-10.
