Boston International Student Stories

Kendrys V.

KENDRYS V.
Merrimack College

Home: Dominican Republic


“People in the city are willing to accept diversity and change and different perspectives”

 

Originally from the Dominican Republic, Kendries is one of the founders and president of the Latino Club at Merrimack, as well as actively involved in Club Asia and the Italian Club. “I’m really interested in diversity, and I am able to immerse myself in different cultures, as opposed to just the Dominican culture.”

When Kendrys steps off campus, he finds numerous opportunities to sate his cultural curiosity. “When I go to Boston, it’s lovely. You find everything there. All the restaurants you want, everything. I feel like people in the city are willing to accept diversity and change and different perspectives. All the students are open to you, and want to learn about you,” he says.” For those students who may be nervous about coming to school in Boston, Kendrys has this to say: “Here, there is una familia.”
