What’s your golden rule in life? Mine is to treat everyone how I would like to be treated. Therefore, everyone initially gets the same amount of respect and care that I would like. I believe in life that honesty and loyalty are everything. Without these two components, everything else will fail—relationships, friendships, etc. In addition to these values, I firmly believe love should be the reason behind everything us as humans do. Everything should come from the heart and intentions should be pure. These few things can give you an idea of who I am as a person and what matters most to me.
Growing up, I lived in a Caribbean household with parents that worked 24/7. So, most of my childhood was usually spent with my two older brothers or myself. This allowed me to become a person that is very comfortable with their solitude. In addition, I moved around a lot so before settling in the Westchester by seventh grade. Friends were not things that stuck around too often because of my frequent moving. Due to my upbringing, I may have missed the sweet memorable moments that girls should have but it made me into the strong independent young woman I am today. When first meeting me I may come off as a shy introvert that does not say too much. Once I get comfortable around someone and see they are genuine, I reveal my true self. I hope to do so with the right people at Baruch and enjoy my first year!
