Despite COVID-19 and classes moving online, the Class of 2020 still completed the longstanding BB&N tradition of making Senior Tiles. Since the 1950s, students (then at Browne and Nichols, now at BB&N) have finished their 12th grade year by painting square ceramic tiles.

Ever since I was young, I have loved learning about the world around me. Starting with simple lava lamp experiments to eventually studying the science behind our brain processes, my passion for areas of STEM has grown with time. However, having grown up in a less privileged country, the opportunities that allowed youth to explore their passions faded behind the many issues my nation was facing.
