Why I Chose BC:

I chose to attend BC because of the community that embraced me with open arms. I remember on my first day at BC as a first grader, it was almost too easy to make friends in the little Carroll Street building. After almost 12 years at Berkeley Carroll, nothing has changed. The Berkeley Carroll community is the most inclusive community that I am a part of and I strive to uphold that standard in every new encounter I have in the BC halls and beyond.

My BC is...

interdisciplinary. I never understood the value of a combined subject class until I took American Studies with Dr. Hughes and Ms. Finigan. Thanks to this class, I appreciate the importance of making connections between different classes in my academic portfolio. This year, I hope to apply this newfound skill to both my math classes, statistics and linear algebra, so I can get a more comprehensive understanding of the role math plays in the world.
