Alex, CRLS class of 2018 recipient of the CRLS Core Values Scholarship, now enrolled at Wellesley college, told us:
“I’m just a kid from Scottsdale—not Cambridge. I lived in that beautiful desert city until I was 17, when I won a scholarship to study abroad in the Netherlands. After a year abroad, I didn’t want to go back to the life I had always known, so I moved to Cambridge. Leaving everything behind only showed me the potential of what lay ahead of me. In these last two years I have learned that what keeps me moving forward are the unique relationships I create wherever I go. I have also discovered some of my passions, such as learning languages, writing, reading, and interacting with different cultures. I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know that I’ll be spending the next chapter at Wellesley College, where I hope to make a difference.”
Congratulations, Alex and thank you for exemplifying the CRLS core values of Opportunity, Diversity, Respect!
