Favorite thing(s) about Tufts and/or Boston?: My favorite thing about Tufts is that we have such a diverse class. There are so many unique things about my classmates (wide age range, different cultures, kids/no kids, previous careers, military experience, wealthy/not wealthy, etc.) and I’m happy that Tufts believes in bringing EVERYONE together. Some dental schools will claim that they are looking for diversity, but when you look at the demographics of their recently accepted students, they didn’t really put their money where their mouth was. Also, Boston is cool because I always see dogs outside and I can get pho almost anywhere in the city.
One of my favorite things to do is to explore the city on foot, while taking pictures & listening to music! 🗺🎶
Fun Fact(s) about yourself and/or hobbies?: Every December my friends and I get together for an Annual *Britmas* Celebration. It’s like Christmas, but the entire party is centered around Britney Spears and we celebrate her by wearing a themed “BritFit”, play some Britney-themed trivia, listen to her music, exchange gifts with another “Britney” at the party, and most importantly no one is allowed in without 2 bottles of champagne for mimosas. Because of Covid, our 4th Annual Britmas had to happen over zoom and it simply wasn’t the same. Here’s hoping that we get “lucky” this year and that our 5th Annual *Britmas* Celebration won’t be so “toxic”.
