Kat Brus

Kat's Story

Kat struggled with debilitating health problems before beginning Bronco Gap Year.

“A big part of this experience has been easing myself back into normal life,” said Brus, an artist and musician who has a job caring for kids with special needs. Through the program, Brus honed her study skills and has found a new interest in Psychology. Her Bronco Gap Year mentors have “kept me on track,” she said, “and given me an idea of what the future can look like.”

For her Gap Year project, Kat took creative writing classes through Coursera and embarked upon a journey of self-discovery through cooking and blogging. Through the experience, she decided that she will pursue a Psychology major.
