“At Brescia I have had many opportunities to gain real-life experience. As part of the Women in Civic Leadership course at Brescia, I was paired with a mentor, the chair of the London Transit Commission. Being able to do research that I could apply is something that most undergraduate students do not get to do. My professors were really supportive of my research, too. This experience, and so many others, showed me that Brescia really cares about students and making sure we are prepared for the real world.”
