Veronica has been enjoying her own education and supporting other students since middle school, when she commenced her secondary education at Polytechnic School in Pasadena, CA. Poly afforded her a world-class education, for which she is forever grateful. In addition to her studies, Veronica participated in Lincoln Douglas debate, co-founded her school’s Latin Club (SPQR), and spent her summers at UCLA researching how to apply video game instructional strategies to mathematics instruction. Leading up to commencement, she earned her school’s Latin Award, became a National AP Scholar with Distinction, and emerged as a National Merit Semi-Finalist.
At Harvard College, she continued to pursue her love of ancient peoples and graduated magna cum laude with a degree in History & Classics. As a freshman, she was a Harvard College Scholar, and as a senior she received the Classics Department Award.
Veronica loves books so much that she is writing her first novel! She has a special place in her heart for aspiring artists of all stripes. Veronica lives in a multi-generational community in East Cambridge with deep roots, so she treasures every chance she get to learn about the local history.
