High School Experience: I’m from Baltimore. I actually went to two different high schools. I went to a public high school for 9th and 10th grade, which was about 300 students per class. It was a public school, and I don’t need to get into all the issues with the Baltimore City public school system, but, in some ways, it was definitely a challenge to go there. I ended up switching to a smaller private school which had about 100 students per class. The two were very different.
First Generation College Student: No
Extracurricular Activities: I was in an acapella group. I was in a social sorority for the first year and a half of college but I dropped it. I was an orientation aide, so I led groups of incoming students through orientation for two years, which was one of my favorite things. I did a couple of volunteering things, like a tutoring organization where I worked with elementary school students in the community, and another thing where I worked with special needs adults in the community.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Yeah, I mean I could talk about a bunch of them separately, but I would say that the main ones that were really impactful for me were being an orientation aide and my acapella group.
