Claremont McKenna
I wanted to go to CMC because of their focus on leadership and government. As a peer counselor at Millbrook, I realized that I loved being a leader and wanted to develop that part of myself in both a practical and intellectual capacity. Additionally, I'm passionate about politics and journalism, so I thought CMC's focus on government in general was a perfect fit. CMC has research centers devoted to international relations and constitutional liberties amohng other topics, so the opportunity to do graduate level research with the professors as an undergraduate is also really attractive. Claremont McKenna is part of the Claremont consortium that includes Pomona, Pitzer, Harvey Mudd, and Scripps. I am so excited to take classes at the other four incredible colleges and meet students from all different backgrounds. Also, I am looking forward to exploring Southern California, from its mountain ranges to the Pacific!

My humanities teachers really developed my writing and thought processes. In Dissent in Theory and Practice with Mr. Clizbe, my logic and thinking processes were completely turned upside down (in a good way). By the end of the year, I was extremely confident, not just in my ideas, but in the process by which I came to my conclusions. I think this is an invaluable asset going into college!
