I went through two milestone events for me today. In school, I had my first Link Crew meeting, in which we did numerous activities to train and to step out comfort zones for the set of freshmen we will be guiding next year. After school, I went to the Meet and Greet for the Brown cohorts and chaperone at Romano's Macaroni Grill in El Cerrito Plaza.

When I arrived there, I couldn't spot anyone else so I waited in front of the restaurant for a while. The weather decided to be super hot, so it wasn't the most comfortable wait ever. Eventually, I saw and met Joanne, our chaperone, and Krystal and Komal. We finally entered Macaroni Grill and sat at our table. The restaurant was dimly lit with fancy decorations. I've passed by this restaurant many times before, but this was my first time there, as with most of the cohorts. When Bailey, Camila and Lynda arrived, we all introduced ourselves. I felt very welcome and comfortable talking to everyone even though we just met. I appreciate how we all share the enthusiasm of traveling and experiencing this program together since we all mentioned how we've heard how life-changing it is. It makes me even more excited and eager to go to Brown now.
