A little about Rae Hamilton

Rae Hamilton's picture

Hello one in all, following the stream of fellow classmates I will keep this brief. I was born in Boston and raised in a suburb outside of Boston, Somerville. I live with my mom who is originally from England, my two brothers one who is a registered nurse and the other about to start 2nd grade.

I spent my earlier days at catholic school, where at the end of fifth grade the school shut down due to lack of student enrollment. From there, I went to Prospect Hill Academy Charter School. About a train stop away from Harvard University, I spent the rest of my middle school and high school years there. PHA is unique tha t on paper its an urban school with over 70% is black, specifically Haitian, the other percentages are made up of Hispanic and then white. But in reality, PHA is a college-prepatory school dedicated to getting us all to college. And every year about 99% go to college. The 1% going to either the army or community college. 

Education has always been a big thing in my family seeing as my older brother went to medical school and that my mother has been an educator for more than 20 years. 


I hope this was a good introduction!
