Welcome to Purchase College! My name is Shavell Fernandez. I’m a junior but also a double major with Theatre and Performance and Legal Studies. My pronouns are she/her/hers. I live in Brooklyn. I’ve gotten involved with programs on campus like Alumni Engagement, PSGA, SOL, and now EOP! Working on campus has humbled me and made me work harder for what I want to achieve. EOP has been there for me since I’ve stepped foot at Purchase. One thing I can say is that I’ve improved on is being positive. Having a positive energy with you has opportunities come to you. It allows you to be strong and have a balanced routine of taking care of yourself. It will allow you to expand your mind to the fullest. Mistakes happen, but it’s your job to learn from it.
