BA, Media Studies and African-American & African Studies, the University of Virginia

InGenius Prep

I graduated from the University of Virginia with double degrees in Media Studies and African-American and African Studies. At UVA, I was a news reporter at the school newspaper Cavalier Daily , a post-production assistant at the Darden School of Business, and the Communications Chair of China Dialogue Dinners, an initiative aiming to providing a safe space for Chinese and American students share their opinions over contemporary issues.

I was able to broaden my horizon during college. I studied abroad in Morocco for two months and even completed a short internship there. During that time I practiced French, picked up some Arabic from my host family, rode on camels, drank tons of mint tea, and visited ten-plus distinctive cities. My experience there in addition to travelling in two other countries exposed me to a great volume of cultural diversity and formed my passion in cross-cultural issues.
I worked at UVA’s Career Center in my last year of college and assisted hundreds of students in career exploration. It was a rewarding experience of knowing the students’ aspirations and making suggestions accordingly. I want to continue this type of work at InGenius, and I look forward to supporting students sharing their unique voices in their applications and finding their best-match schools.
