“If you really like solving problems, as I do, Minerva is certainly a good place to thrive.”

In high school, Tiago participated in several Olympiads where he was introduced to problem solving large-scale, open-ended questions, similar to the Big Questions at Minerva. His experience enabled him to explore multiple interesting fields and hone his skills in data analyzation and public speaking, which he is eager to continue in his college experience.
