Alumni Spotlight: Lucien Christie-Dervaux

June 15, 2018

Lucien enrolled at MMFS during his ninth-grade year and is a member of the first graduating class of the upper school. At his previous school, he was bullied and struggled to feel safe. As a result, his grades suffered. At MMFS, he felt comfortable and was able to thrive. “MMFS teachers created an environment where I learned to like learning. I gained the confidence that I could do whatever I wanted if I put the work in.”

As a driven student, and with the encouragement of Amy Salomon-Kohn, Lucien took several AP tests to earn free college credits. His ambition allowed Lucien to graduate from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in December, a semester early, with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. Although his course load was intense, he was able to find time to practice karate, and even picked up rock climbing in his senior year.

Through an internship at Wayfair, Lucien was offered a job as a software engineer at the start of his senior year, and is now living and working in Boston.
