Carleton College, Psychology and Women & Gender Studies
I attend Carleton College, one of the best liberal arts college in the nation, an institution that I would not have attended if it were not for the generous help from The Battier Take Charge Foundation. I am thinking about majoring in Psychology with a woman and gender studies concentration, on a pre-med track. My anticipated graduation date is June 2019.
My advice to any high school student is if you want something and you think it is worth getting, do not stop working for it. People will tell you that you have to be realistic, that it is impossible for someone like you to do something like that. Those people can range from loved ones to envious ones, and you have to understand that you can honestly do anything you put your mind to it.
I heard of The Take Charge Foundation through my college counselor at KIPP Houston High School.
