I never dreamt of going to a school like Cornell University. However, Trinity’s College Prep and IB Diploma Programs paved my way to my acceptance at Cornell. I am certain that I am prepared for the college experience because of the values and education Trinity has instilled in me over the past four years. I am excited to expand my horizons in Ithaca. As a first-generation student, I am not sure what to expect from the college experience, but I know that I will be ready for it because of Trinity.
Also, I can definitely say that Trinity has made me a more open-minded and well-rounded individual. Trinity’s education has allowed me to expand my horizons both inside and outside of the classroom. In my four year at Trinity, I have been exposed to a diverse environment of cultures and socioeconomic classes. I know that I will carry Trinity’s values with me for the rest of my life. Trinity is a harbor for long lasting friendships and while I will miss my friends in the fall, I know that they will be there for me throughout my college experience and beyond.
