Dr. Jorge Alvarez High School

Katrine was born in Athens Greece, where she attended school for most of her life. She came to the United States in 2011 to attend Mercersburg Academy in Pennsylvania, from where she graduated high school. Her experience as an international student, has enabled her to understand the struggles that some students face, in a unique way. She then went on to earn her B.A. in psychology at Vassar College, from where she graduated in May 2016. Katrine held a tutoring position during her time at Vassar, where she helped elementary school students with disabilities as well as English language learners. She became passionate about education and college access, and loves to use her creativity to positively influence people. Katrine believes that everyone deserves the chance to go to college and acquire the skills needed to promote change for a better world. She is excited to serve as a College Adviser for Dr Jorge Alvarez High School in Providence this year!
