Bailey Head Shot

Bailey, C'23

  • Major Political Science and Philosophy
  • Hometown Brooklyn Park, Minnesota

Bailey came into Penn with a plan but taking Philosophy of Law in the spring of her freshmen year helped her find her true passion and pursue a double major in political science and philosophy with a minor in anthropology. Bailey has continued to follow her interests ever since then by deciding to also earn a Persian Language Certificate, co-chairing Programs for Religious, Interfaith, and Spiritual Matters (PRISM), and wearing multiple hats at Williams Café, a student run café on campus. Penn has given Bailey the opportunity to broaden her horizons by diving into her interests. After she graduates, Bailey is interested in working in the field of the international law, specifically personal expression. Being in the Named Scholarship Program has given Bailey the confidence to take academic risks and pursue all these different paths knowing that there was someone out there who is supporting her education.

"I’m a first-generation student and would not have thought to study Philosophy, Political Science, and Anthropology if I didn’t have Named Scholarships and Penn behind me."
