#Drew22: Meet Hannah, Sidney and Ved

Pursuing political science, history and biology.

Hannah Goldbach
Girls Preparatory School
Chattanooga, Tenn.

About Hannah

In high school, Hannah enjoyed English literature and Spanish in particular and stayed busy outside the classroom, running track, cheerleading and serving as a chapter officer for Amnesty International. She also loves writing, reading, listening to podcasts and hiking. At Drew, she plans to major in political science, minor in Russian and continue her work with Amnesty.

Why Drew?

“Proximity to New York City was a huge factor in my decision. Drew’s political science program also made Drew an easy choice.”


Sidney Resnik
Baruch College Campus High School
New York, N.Y.

About Sidney

In high school, Sidney earned six academic awards, recognizing his proficiency in Spanish, his knowledge and enthusiasm around history and having the highest GPA in English. He also starred in a production of The Breakfast Club, played piano for the Rock Club and attended the Model United Nations conference in New York City. In addition, this son of a teacher has more than 200 hours of teaching experience—from pre-kindergarten to sixth grade. At Drew, he’ll focus on history, particularly the classics.

Why Drew?

“Because of the history department and its professors, who I got to know while still making my decision. Also, I was able to play a piano in the music department.”


Ved Vengsarkar
Briar Woods High School
Ashburn, Va.

About Ved

At Briar Woods, Ved took advanced placement courses in biology, chemistry, economics and calculus, played tennis and was senior officer of the Math Honor Society. He volunteered in his community as well—at a hospital, hospice and physical therapy center. As an undergraduate, he’ll likely major in biology perhaps join the tennis team.

Why Drew?

“There is an amazing focus on the liberal arts, which is designed to provide students with an expanded intellectual horizon. I was also drawn to the BA/MD program, where I could major in biology and really be a part of the strong academic focus. Also, the community seemed especially friendly and I knew that I could really thrive here.”
