Kelly will attend UC Berkeley where she will enroll as a undeclared Social Science major. Kelly has varied interests one of which is history. As stated in her application, “College is a place where I plan to explore, grow and learn. I want to make a difference in the world, and help people by helping them understand themselves.”

    Not likely considering she is interested in the social sciences. She'll probably just end up as another over emotional social justice zealot complaining that there aren't enough restrooms for every made up gender she can come up with.
