Jeromel Dela Rosa Lara '23
Greetings! I am Jeromel, and I am a sophomore at Cabot House (Semper Cor, Semper Quad, Semper Cabot!) studying Comparative Study of Religion and Ethnicity, Migration, and Rights. I was born in the Philippines, and I lived there for 11 years before immigrating here to the U.S. with my mother in 2011. We have moved around from place to place across the country. I have lived in San Diego, Chicago, and Boston. Right now I am on campus at Cambridge, Mass.
I am a student deacon at MemChurch, and I am so drawn to this church community where faith entails, as Ralph Waldo Emerson puts it, “the light of rising and of setting suns, with the flying cloud, the singing bird, and the breath of flowers.” My biggest interests in life are journalism and the Humanities. I love reading, hearing, and seeing people’s stories as reflected in books, art, and music (so much admiration to UChoir) where you would almost always see me before the pandemic (and hopefully after) in libraries, museums, choral and orchestral concerts, and cultural events.
