It was a life filled with victimhood and self harm. At one point she complains that the psych ward was rejecting her even after she scratched herself.
A fifth year PhD student in mathematics, Perry is well remembered by many for hir charm, wit, and passion to fight against injustice.
Born Oct. 3, 1991, Perry was raised in Manchester, England, and Concord, Mass. In high school, Perry attended the Program in Mathematics for Young Scientists (PROMYS) through Boston University, eventually becoming the head counselor.
