Why I Chose BC:

From the moment I saw the maroon Berkeley Carroll logo that greeted me when I walked into the building for my tour, I knew this school was the one. I was met with so many kind and friendly faces that in the sea of so many unknown ones comforted me. As I continued to grow at BC, those unknown faces became ones of lifelong friends.

My BC is...

home. It's where I have been able to grow and develop into the unapologetically proud Muslim woman of color I am; as well as learn things I never would've anywhere else. Berkeley Carroll is home to all MY people - who echo my energy, who make me laugh, who make me think, and most importantly: have become a part of my chosen family.
