Nothing – not even the world’s largest college campus – can contain Brin Enterkin’s personality or her passion to make a difference in the world.
While in high school, Brin was already making headlines for spearheading a fundraising effort to build a school in Cambodia. When it came time to pick a college, she decided that Berry was the place for her because she wanted an enriched education and a chance to develop her leadership skills.
A recipient of the Leadership Fellows Scholarship, Brin makes the most of every minute. As a freshman, she traveled to Holland with the Model United Nations team and earned a grant to teach micro-financing to women in rural Uganda. She also got involved with Berry College Student Enterprises, serving on the student consulting team that provides professional assistance for student-operated businesses on the Berry campus.
Her experiences in Uganda inspired Brin to start her own nonprofit, The Sponsorship of Orphans in Uganda Project (SOUP), which earned national recognition in 2009 as the recipient of a $5,000 grant through the Jenzabar Foundation’s Student Leadership Awards.
"When I got to Berry, I had no idea what I was going to study," she exclaimed. "I am excited to see where Berry will lead me next."
