Washington University in St. Louis
BackgroundInterview Date:July 2018
Gender Identity: Female
Graduation Year: 2020
High School Experience: Public school in Chappaqua, New York with a graduating class of around 300 students.
First Generation College Student: No
Major: PNP (Philosophy, Neuroscience, and Psychology). It is a major that Wash U created where students take classes in all three subject areas but eventually focus on one in particular. I am focusing on psychology.
Extracurricular Activities: Greek Life; Synapse, a neuroscience club that provides me with shadowing opportunities at the medical school and allows me to go to into local elementary schools to teach kids about the brain; MedEd, another club where we go into St. Louis public schools to teach the kids about hygiene and overall health; City Faces, a program where I go to downtown St. Louis to mentor a young girl and explore the city with her.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
City Faces has had the biggest impact on me because we go into a low-income housing community and see a lot of the problems that St. Louis has while also hanging out with the kids and becoming a role model for them.
