Boston, Session 1

College Prep Week 1

I was exhausted after my first full week of classes in college prep program with the Abbey Road Programs, but we had so much fun getting to know one another. One of the highlights of the week was going to the Harvard Observatory to watch the super moon on a sophisticated telescope. I'm always open to new ideas, so I thought this would be a ...
