Favorite Thing about TUSDM/Why you chose Tufts: I wanted to attend TUSDM since the first time I visited back when I was in undergrad. As I entered the school for the first time, I remember the students and the administration I met with were very genuine and kind. I learned on my visit a lot of what the school was like, how diverse it was, how supportive the school was about mental health and wellness, how cohesiveness the student body is, the different opportunities given to the students. All of this helped me decide that Tufts was where I wanted to be and could not see myself anywhere else! I also loved the city vibes of Boston!
Fun Fact About yourself/Things involved in outside of School: I competed the Boston Marathon in 2019, the year I matriculated into Tufts!
