Name: Bella Clemente
Major: BS in Brain and Cognitive Sciences and BA in Studio Arts
Birthday: October 31!
Hometown: Herndon, VA
Advice to give incoming Freshmen: Figure out a daily schedule with prioritized study hours, and make lists of things to do for each day that you can always have on-hand!
If you could do one thing over at college what would it be?: Figure out my time management and be more active in specific clubs on campus
Favorite thing about University of Rochester: When the tower bells play songs and the population of groundhogs!
What is your campus involvement? Why do you support this club?: I’m currently one of the captains of the Women’s Rowing team. This is my 7th year in rowing, and being on the team changed my whole college experience. Being a part of such a connected, caring group of people has provided me a home base while being out of state, and an awesome growing circle of friends and support. I am also a third year member of the Mock Trial team. Mock Trial is another great group of individuals whom I’ve become close with, even though I joined my sophomore year. It’s been really interesting, even though I don’t have any future plans involved with law.
Dream Job: Either a house-flipper or a professional photographer for National Geographic
Life motto: Always consider how much certain things now will matter to you in 5, 10, 15 years from now. Having a different perspective changes the game. Feeling like its the end of the world because of a bad test or a rough day can totally change when you think about what you’ll remember years from now.
Favorite/Most inspirational Athlete: Meghan Kalmoe!
Thank you so much Bella!
