Inside and outside the classroom, Barrett is shaped in large part by its diverse faculty, staff, and students. Share a story that is so central to your intellectual identity that your application would be incomplete without it. In a drab little apartment- streaked gray by pollution- nestled in the dusty streets of Bogota, Colombia, my mother once asked me at the age of three years old what I wanted to be when I grew up. Behind me, the entire collective of what I knew as truth, my dreams, and what I thought would be my future, remained in the small group of people waving my mother and me a solemn goodbye.
