Country of Origin




“I think I always knew that Minerva would be the school I’d end up at. It held the tantalizing promise of allowing me to make autonomous, empowering choices in my educational journey, and I couldn’t resist.”

If asked why she chose to attend Minerva, rather than a tradition university program, Menita would say she came to be challenged. Not knowing where her journey over the next four years would lead her to, she was excited and intrigued by the “potential adventure of embracing an undefined journey.” At times, when being challenged feels overwhelming, Menita enjoys leaning on her peers, having late night conversations about culture and philosophy, cooking group meals, and gaining a fresh perspective.
