Valentine Tendo-Kuharic

Program Advisor

Please tell us about your work and how long you have been at Brown?
I have been at Brown for 4+ years. I support current and prospective Pre-College students and parents with general inquiries surrounding programs, courses, the application process and any other questions or concerns they might have. 

What has been your most memorable or rewarding experience since joining Brown?
Pre-College campus check-ins are the most rewarding part of my role since I get the opportunity to meet the students and parents I interact with. Engaging with students and parents on campus reminds me of why I do what I do.

What is one Pre-College course you would love to take?
Compassionate Creativity for Health and Well-Being. I am interested in the intersectionality of art with healing practices.

What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
I’ve always had an interest in the culinary arts. Cooking is one of my favorite pastimes and I love exploring different cuisines.

What is one thing on your bucket list?
I would love to visit and explore Asia.
