Favorite things about Tufts/Boston: My classmates are the best part of my experience here in Boston! Everyone is just so kind, inspiring, and dedicated. Being in this environment has pushed me beyond beliefs and has forced me to constantly evolve into a better student and, more importantly, a better human being.

Fun Fact: – I'm obsessed with going to the gym

Favorite thing(s) about Tufts and/or Boston? I didn't expect to fall in love with Boston as much as I did! I enjoy exploring all of the neighborhoods of Boston and how they have their own little character. Boston is such a walkable city which makes getting around super easy.

Fun Fact(s) about yourself and/or hobbies? A fun fact about me is that I love to cook! I often find myself cooking to procrastinate studying haha! I didn't really learn how to cook until college and I ended up teaching myself. Now I am constantly experimenting with new recipes. This past year I made two 20lb turkeys for thanksgiving and learned how to grill! I am also a wine, craft beer, and coffee nerd too.
