Director of Essay Program and Blogger
I am a first-year at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. I plan on declaring a double major in both English and Spanish. I am a member of Smith’s first-generation student organization and would like to bring attention to first-gen issues on my campus and beyond. I hope to become a professor and work with students to better understand literature. I call New York City home. More specifically, Queens! I went to a Catholic all-girls’ high school with a high concentration of first-generation students. I am proud of being first-generation and I talk about it frequently and openly. Going through the college application process alone was a scary and overwhelming experience for me. By working with SWAG, I’m able to help other students who are going though the same process. I currently run SWAG’s essay reading program.
