Berberian was born and raised in Wallingford. He plans to visit a diverse collection of lusophone countries-nations and territories once colonized by the Portuguese. Seeking the guidance of individuals devoted to serving children without parents or without homes, he wants to reach these kids deemed problematic or unapproachable by most societies. He looks forward to traveling throughout Sub-Sahar an Africa by means of public transport, and to visiting a Sisters of Mercy orphanage in India, operated by the order of nuns known for Mother Theresa. Peter would love the opportunity to someday study public health and internal medicine, focusing on infectious diseases, particularly the neurocognitive deficits associated with malaria.
