WHAT COLLEGES SEEK

Colleges want to see whether you will thrive on their campus or not. They also want to see if they can see you on their campus. Make your case!

AREAS OF EXPERTISE IN COLLEGE

I have always been interested in engineering since I was a young kid and I knew I didn’t want to give that dream up. I liked roller coasters, so this was the perfect major for me. I also decided in college that since I loved history for a long time that I should pursue that as well. College is a time to experiment with all kinds of classes and I certainly took advantage of that.

COLLEGE ACTIVITIES

  • Fencing Club

  • Alpha Theta Gender-Inclusive Greek House

  • Dartmouth Anime and Manga Network

  • Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers

  • The Bayan- Filipino Association

UNIQUE HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCES

In high school, I wanted to pursue my creative passions while pursuing my professional life. So, I combined the two by doing musical theatre every year that I was there and scientific research. I developed three different research projects while there. My high school was also very service-intensive and so I would help out as a tutor for other students and I would also do restoration services at the New York Botanical Garden on the weekends.

COLLEGE ACCESS CONSULTING EXPERIENCE

For the past four years, I took part in the Heckscher Pre-College Program at the Bronx Center for Science and Mathematics and helped students at the high school begin and finish drafts of their college personal statements and their college supplements. In addition, I have also served for the past two years as a High School Application Mentor for Breakthrough New York where students apply to private schools where the process is similar in nature to the college process in the complexity of their prompts.

I love to act, sing, and dance and have been doing it since I was 5 years old. No TV Shows, Movies, or Broadway shows yet, but maybe someday. I also love cats but never had one (Sadness).
