Ishrat, Barnard Class of 2020

After moving into campus, I saw right away that it was a big transition from high school. I encounter people with very different backgrounds and identities from me, so there’s a little bit of doubt inside of me that maybe I don’t belong here. But, we had talked about that at Summer Academy, and even now, we can reach out to each other to share experiences, to share reassurances. I know that I’m not alone.
