What Gives You Hope?

paulinaBrandeis students like Paulina Kuzmin ’17 give us hope. A BNC Scholar from Tucson, Arizona, Paulina  is double majoring in neuroscience and biology. She works as a community advisor (CA) for two freshmen halls where she  helps residents discover their passions and inspires them to get the most out of their college experience. Paulina also works in the Lovett lab as a biology technician. She credits her own Brandeis experience to members of the BNC who have helped her realize her goals and dreams through the  endless opportunities afforded to her as BNC Scholar. Paulina plans to graduate ahead of schedule, in December 2016, to pursue a career in medicine and also earn a dual master’s degree in public health (MPH).

 
Read Paulina’s thank you letter where she describes the lasting impact your support has made on her life and those of other BNC Scholars.

Since 1948, BNC members have raised more than $131 million to support Brandeis students, faculty, the library and cutting-edge research in neuroscience. Please consider making a gift today to ensure students like Paulina continue to fulfill their potential through a Brandeis education.
