Summit, New Jersey - B-BAY c/o 2021
As a member of the Class of 2026 at Stanford University, I am interested in business marketing/strategy, politics, public service, and foreign languages.
I am interested in traveling the world and learning more about different cultures and societies and learning foreign languages. Using my knowledge of foreign languages, I became the co-founder of Aprendalo.org, an online ESL tutoring service that caters to those who want to learn English but simply lack the means to pay for ESL lessons.
As the leader of Spanish Club and Democratic Society, I enjoy being a student leader and organizer who comes up with fresh, new, innovative ways to tackle everyday problems. I was the first student to take a research-based independent study in Spanish in high school. My podcasts and newspaper articles reflect my interest in politics, world cultures, and optimism for structural change.
In the B-BAY program, I further developed my skills in business and marketing. Furthermore, I worked with the program mentors to create and polish his college application essays. After the program, armed with knowledge and confidence, the ESL organization took off. Without a doubt, the B-BAY program helped me develop my skills in business asI questioned the status quo in search of solutions. I look forward to doing the same in the Education program student at Stanford.
Jamaica- B-BAY c/o 2017 & 2018
I first took part in B-BAY for the 2017 Entrepreneurship high school session where my team ‘Afoodable’ placed third at the final showcase, followed by the 2018’s High School Critical Thinking session. Currently, I’m a junior at the University of Technology, Jamaica completing a Bachelor in Computer Science. My favorite B-BAY moments were networking with a diverse batch of students and being challenged daily within the lecture rooms. I also enjoyed being immersed in the university lifestyle as this prepared me for what was to come my freshman year. Through my experiences they have further pushed me to be a student always which is one of the four defining principles.
Cupertino, CA- B-BAY c/o 2017
I’m currently a second year studying Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley. I attended the Berkeley Business Academy for Youth in the Summer of 2017 and it was one of the most enriching and remarkable experiences I’ve had. Not only was I exposed to the lifestyle of a college student, but I also was able to get insight on Haas classes that are offered by the university and develop my leadership, teamwork, and public speaking skills. My team and I placed 2nd in the competition and were able to create a professional business plan, pitch, and presentation in a span of just 2 weeks. Now at UC Berkeley, I’m involved in an organization called FEMTech that pushes women in the STEM field and represent my community in student government.
San Jose, California - B-BAY c/o 2015
I’m a rising Junior at San Jose State University studying Management Information Systems. I attended the Berkeley Business Academy for Youth in 2015 the summer before I attended high school, and it gave me huge inspiration for what I am doing today and where the future lies for me. After I graduate college, my goal is to work in the educational technology space and use ideas like computer vision and machine learning to create better products for our education and transform our education system through technological advances. Outside of school and my career aspirations, I am a huge fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Cooking, and love to go on hikes and bike rides. I am really excited to meet all of you and am looking forward to an amazing summer!
