Favorite things about Tufts/Boston: I love so many things about Boston! Some things I love are the history and how mostly everything is within walking distance. I am a huge theater fan as well, so living so close to the theater district is definitely a MAJOR plus!

Fun Fact: I am a singer, dancer, and actress! I have been a dancer since I was 3 years old and I have been singing since as long as I can remember! 🙂

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.
