Don’t Give Up on a Dream
At the age of 9, Kristen saw a film on polar bears and decided to help save the Earth. From then on, she joined environmental community projects, started a school recycling drive, and wrote a “Think Green” column for her school newspaper. In high school, she set her sights on BU’s Earth Sciences program, with its worldwide research and fieldwork opportunities. But Kristen’s mother, a single parent with two children, felt the cost of a BU degree was out of reach. Still, she and Kristen explored financial aid options at BU and applied for assistance.
