Misha Puello Brasil ’25
(she/they) I’m a double major in Psychology and English with a Creative Writing minor. I’m also the president of the Psychology Club, and I work for MMC’s Office of Student Life and with children at an arts studio.
Tell us about your goals and how you like to spend your time!
I’m interested in becoming a college professor down the line and maybe even writing and publishing a few books. I love to read and write and have recently been obsessed with my Switch and playing Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley. Other than that, I’m usually blasting music or binge-watching a TV show. I love dogs and cats and have both: Bella and Salem, respectively. I’m a commuter student, so I spend a lot of time on the train, but those couple hours of sitting each day can be really nice.
What drew you to peer mentoring?
It’s good practice for being a professor and a good way to make new friends and connections. Also, I would’ve loved having a peer mentor when I transitioned into college. Through Psychology Club, I was lucky to find a peer who mentored me during my sophomore year, and it made a world of difference. I became more confident and gained a lot of experience and connections at school through that one association and friendship. Through this program, I’ll have the opportunity to be that guiding friend for someone else in a big city like New York.
