- College Advising Corps
Melissa was born in Montclair near the base of Southern California. She was excited to graduate from Montclair High School in 2012 and move on to Brown University where she graduated in May 2016. For 3 years she worked at the Met High School in an after school program to engage students with environmental science through hands-on activities. The program also provides access to the outdoors by taking students camping, to natural museums, and greenhouses. She is invested in providing equal opportunity to all students regardless of their background. Having gone through the public education system herself she understands the experience of first generation students applying to college. She is grateful to have the opportunity to work with the College Advising Corps and looks forward to serving at E-Cubed Academy for a second year.
