Over the past few weeks, I’ve read the blogs of those already at Brown. They seem to be having a fantastic time and I can’t wait to experience college life for myself. The weeks of preparation for the trip have seemed surreal. I am now packed and ready to go, but it’s still hard to believe that in just a few hours I will depart for Providence, Road Island.
Words cannot describe how excited I am for the next three weeks. Not only am I taking a two-week Women and Leadership course at Brown, I also have the opportunity to spend a week visiting some of the most prestigious colleges in the world. I know the people I’ll meet and the things I’ll learn will influence me for the rest of my life. I feel so honored to have this amazing opportunity.
Each day, the significance of participating in Ivy League Connections has become more apparent to me. I feel so proud to be part of the school district with this amazing program. Tomorrow morning, if you can call 2:45 AM morning, I know I’ll be more awake than asleep and everything will finally seem real.
