Student Spotlight – Deijhah Scurry ’18

Loves About Brebeuf

I love the people I have met and relationships I have formed. Brebeuf provides a unique environment where I am able to have teachers who care about my well-being as a whole person, rather than just a student in their classes. I have made friendships with people who I would never have met without Brebeuf! This special space has given me the opportunity to grow into the person I am today, which I am extremely proud of. 

Favorite Class

My favorite class of all time is my AP Psychology class last year with Mr. Petty! The class was so interesting, and I really found my interest in the human mind during that class!

Future Plans 

I am unsure of what college I will attend next year, but I want to study Neuroscience and Psychology!

Teams & Co-Curriculars

I would say that I am a pretty involved member of the Brebeuf community! I have been a part of the cheerleading team for all four years and have been a part of our dance team for the past two years. In addition, I have participated in every Spring Musical since my freshman year, and even played Mama in last year’s production of “Chicago”. In regards to my clubs, I am Co-President of Black Student Union and Vice President of Social Justice Club. I also am a member of Student Advocates for Gender Equality, and Pre-Med Club. I also took part in the 2017 Debutante Cotillion this year, where I won a book award.

Random Facts

Two random facts about me are that I was on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and I HATE ketchup!

What is your current favorite show or series on tv, Netflix, etc?

I’d have to say MINDHUNTER or Stranger Things! They’re both SOO good!

If you could travel to any place in the world, where would you go and why?

I would go back to Salvador, Brazil! It’s such a beautiful place and the food was amazing!

What advice would you offer our Braves in the Class of 2021?

Do not be afraid of growing up or being yourself. At Brebeuf we have the privilege to mature into the people we wish to become, and have plenty of resources around you to help with the process. We all come in freshman year, either completely sure of who we think we are or incredibly frightened by not knowing our identity. But, I know you will figure it out. It takes time, hard work, and patience, but the end result is very rewarding.
