Xianne Berger is Facing the Future with Peace

Xianne Berger is in her first year at Borough of Manhattan Community College, CUNY. Is it hard? Not for Xianne. 

She celebrates the challenges of her past, the way her education so far has pushed her, stretched her boundaries as a scholar. Even better, she’s equipped to find her community — her college family — a group of peers dedicated to helping one another find success in their college experience, too.

Xianne joins Samantha Diaz to share how her Girls Prep experience helped her find peace and comfort in challenging situations as she embarks on her college career.

We'd like to introduce you to graduates of our Girls Prep Academy who each demonstrate the power and promise of a Public Prep scholar. Their stories are incredible.

Public Prep is an award-winning network of charter schools across Manhattan and the Bronx and the nation’s first non-profit tuition-free charter school network that develops exceptional pre-K and single-gender elementary and middle public schools.

Stay tuned for a series of conversations with our scholars as we reflect on their Public Prep experience with inspiring, motivating, and joyful stories of success and resilience.
