Brianna Daniel-Harkins won the Bronze Medal in the 2017 College Greek Exam, the nationally standardized exam for assessing students in their first year of college-level Greek.
"I love the Greek language because it challenges me and does not forgive me--it forces me to forgive myself and allow myself to make mistakes while I translate. Translating is like a puzzle or a math problem to me and teaches me self discipline and critical thinking skills each and every day," says Daniel-Harkins, pictured wearing her prestigious medal.
