Hometown: North Kingstown, Rhode Island


四年级时, 雷切尔布朗 was diagnosed with ADHD, comprehension issues, and a nonspecific learning disorder.

“The doctor told my mom and me that I had ‘wicked ADHD,’” Rachel recalls.

School was difficult enough, 但ADHD是一种“男孩多动症”的认知让她更难做到这一点. When she came to Landmark College in 2011, 她很高兴地得知,“老师不会根据过去的失败来评判你. 他们寻找你的潜力,并帮助你找到实现它的最佳途径. 他们明白,任何人都可以拥有任何ld组合,但仍然可以成功.”

作为一名副学士学位学生,瑞秋的经历是如此深刻,以至于她决定继续攻读学士学位:她是学院第一批获得B的学生之一.A. in Liberal Studies in May 2016. 她目前正在南新罕布什尔大学攻读硕士学位.

Beyond the classroom, Rachel has thrived as one of LC’s student leaders. “我在LC有很多很好的领导机会:作为新生领袖, working with the Women’s Center, 与校园活动委员会一起组织春游和万圣节派对等活动, and as a Resident Assistant.”

Somehow in between all of that plus schoolwork, Rachel played softball!

2015年夏季,她还在营销与传播办公室实习, where she worked on social media, 摄像, and event planning. “我为我未来在市场营销和传播领域的职业生涯积累了宝贵的经验,瑞秋说。.

Equally important are the friendships Rachel made at LC. “我小时候很害羞,在同龄人中很难找到自己的位置. 在这里, your academic success is directly tied to a feeling that you belong, because once you start experiencing success in the classroom, you open up socially.

“我们都来自不同的背景,但我们都知道我们都在挣扎, 正因为如此,我们可以相互联系,建立一个强大的朋友社区.”

“My first semester here, I got Bs and Cs. 在那之后的每一个学期,我的成绩都在攀升,最终我进入了院长名单! Landmark学院的老师们总是和我一起努力,想办法防止我的学习差异阻碍我的成功. 我学会了在工作中克服障碍,站在有利的位置上工作.”

来到LC后,埃弗雷特的社交焦虑立刻开始消散. “My first roommate became the best friend I’ve ever had. 当我意识到我们都来自相似的地方时,试图与同龄人建立联系的焦虑开始消失.”地标学院校友埃弗雷特法与学生事务工作人员Idonas Hughes
