Why did you choose to attend Middlebury? I was intrigued by Middlebury’s commitment to fostering a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion, demonstrated by its focus on affordability, sustainability, and generous financial aid. My United World College experience taught me the importance of a global, tight-knit, and empathetic community that parallels Middlebury’s community. I knew the values, mission, and unique educational environment at Middlebury would help me enhance my core values and create a foundation for me to succeed, therefore I chose Middlebury.

One fun fact about you or unknown talent you have: I am a polyglot. I can speak more than three languages.
