Creative personal story, Story central to identity
In Art class one afternoon, while my classmates distract themselves from the still life in front of us to discuss their favorite part of high school, I try to focus on tearing newspaper for my still life collage, but I cannot ignore them any longer.

Instead of being intimidated as the only girl in my Honors and Advanced Placement Physics classes, I have derived satisfaction from succeeding in math and science as a woman. From what I have heard, not only does Brown's theory based on engineering curriculum prepare me for graduate school, but also the ABET accredited engineering degree would allow me to enter the industry.
