Melody DeBlasio

My name is Melody DeBlasio, and I am a high school junior from New Haven, Connecticut. As a bona fide nerd and eager scholar, I've navigated all the ins and outs of the high school academic system. I currently take honors, AP, and dual enrollment classes, and I'm a part-time college student at three universities. I'm excited to be sharing my knowledge and experiences through CollegeXpress as I myself prepare for life after high school. Outside of school, I am a competitive swimmer, member of the debate team, participant in multiple extracurricular science programs, a world traveler, and a lifelong Girl Scout.
