  1. Short Bio (In 150 words OR LESS, please describe what you’ve done since graduating from MCDS):
After graduating from Florida International University back in May 2018 with a major in Communications and concentration in Asian Studies, I completed my internship at MCDS and took on the role as PR Manager for Miami-Dade County Commissioner Jean Monestime’s re-election campaign. In October, I will make my way to Seoul, South Korea. Since being immersed in East Asian culture since 2007, I will have the opportunity to put my language skills to the test. Additionally since graduating I have gone public with my freelance photography. Kanesha Janel Photography is doing quite well, and I cannot wait to expand my horizons.

  1. Please share one of your favorite moments, experiences, or memories from your time at Miami Country Day.
One of my favorite memories from my time at Miami Country Day was performing as the Cat in the Hat in Seussical the Musical with all of my friends for my senior year.

  1. What is one experience from MCDS that you’ve taken with you and have referred back to as a resource or guide in your adult life?
It’s not one experience because it is continuous as I still practice it today. Being compassionate.

  1. What advice would you offer future MCDS alumni?
Never hesitate. This is not to be confused with waiting. Patiently planning out and executing plans and taking calculated risks are worth it. But don’t hesitate in whether or not to pursue what you are passionate about.
