April 02, 2017
2017 Jeannette K. Watson Fellow

Originally from East Harlem, New York, Jennifer is a Sophomore at Marymount Manhattan College, majoring in Business, with a minor in Psychology. Despite only being a Sophomore, Jennifer has involved herself in opportunities that most graduating students have never experienced. A member of the Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP), she has already interned with Price Waterhouse Cooper, the Manhattan Borough President’s Office and Bertelsmann Inc., not to mention the countless community service, campus activities she has participated in. A persistent and focused student with a strong work ethic, Jennifer is eager to immerse herself in areas of learning that explore the world from various social, political, and economic perspectives. As a native New Yorker, she hopes to explore new areas of the city with her curious mind as her guide.
