“High Jump equipped me with the skills to be successful as a learner, a leader and a person.”

Michelle decided to join High Jump because she wanted to challenge herself outside of the classes offered at my school. High Jump was where she felt that she could embrace her intellectual curiosity, stretch herself as a thinker and learn from a diverse community of scholars from all across Chicago. High Jump offered an unparalleled learning environment that helped her develop the skills needed to be successful in high school and college.

“The teachers believed in me even when I did not believe in myself, and they showed me all that I could contribute to the world.”

Michelle attended high school at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools. She later graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Science with distinction and Highest Honors in International Studies with a concentration in Global Health. She is now attending the University of Michigan’s medical school.
