Fun fact: I love doing all sorts of art and have recently been into gouache painting!

I wished I’d known: the Cluster program has an incredible amount of resources available to students, which I wasn't fully aware of and couldn't take advantage of during my time taking the course.

Benefit of taking a cluster: I loved being able to learn about a topic from an interdisciplinary perspective for an entire school year -- I felt like our cluster really developed a community, and I was able to have some great conversations with teaching team members about the course and my interests!
