During middle school, Bronfman participated in an innovation lab where Stanford University researchers observed the implementation of innovation. Building on these experiences at Colorado College she has completed The Moving Line course, which was sponsored and co-envisioned by Professor of English Jane Hilberry and Innovation at CC. Bronfman plans to pursue her master’s degree in teaching and become a high school literature teacher.
