Favorite thing(s) about Tufts and/or Boston? My absolute favorite thing about Tufts is how familial the environment is. Everyone is so kind and always so willing to lend a helping hand! The amazing learning experience we receive here at TUSDM comes in as a very close second. As far as Boston goes, I am in love with autumn here. There is nothing like watching the trees shed against the backdrop of such a picturesque city.

Fun Fact(s) about yourself and/or hobbies? I have been singing professionally since I was three years old, and still do today! A goal of mine is to make songwriting/producing/recording music a serious hobby. I also love to paint, specifically with oil paints on canvas. I absolutely love spending time with friends and family, and love to cycle. Playing the Sims 4 (with loads of custom content!) is also something I do for fun to decompress.

Favorite thing(s) about Tufts and/or Boston? I am happy to be at Tufts, and my friends help make school even more enjoyable. From getting coffee or boba together to studying at the library or taking an impromptu walk through the park, I can depend on my friends to be there, helping turn a stressful day into a good day.

Fun Fact(s) about yourself and/or hobbies? I grew up loving the New York Yankees. Although I live in Boston now, youโ€™ll never see me rooting for the home team at Fenway Park.

Favorite thing(s) about Tufts and/or Boston? I love the welcoming community, diversity, and overall positive vibes at TUSDM. Itโ€™s also nice to walk down the street and quickly spot my D24 classmates blocks away, thanks to our vibrant royal blue scrubs! My favorite thing is to wander around different neighborhoods in Boston. Strolling down brownstone streets, daydreaming, and finding new places to get coffee and treats is the best!

Fun Fact(s) about yourself and/or hobbies? Fun Facts: Iโ€™ve never been the biggest fan of Halloweenโ€ฆ The first time I went trick-or-treating at 3-years-old, a spooky house traumatized me so much that I refused to go trick-or-treating ever again.
Also, although I look like Iโ€™m thriving while kayaking in this photo, I kept crashing into a wall multiple times before. Quite the struggle, but still a fun time! Highly recommend kayaking in the Charles River if you havenโ€™t yet! ๐Ÿ™‚

Favorite thing(s) about Tufts and/or Boston? My favorite thing about Tufts is the amazing energy the students & faculty embody. I love seeing how passionate my classmates are to pursue dentistry, and how devoted our faculty is to training us to become exceptional dentists! I also love being apart of such a diverse class and having the opportunity to work together and learn from others. I am so grateful to live in a city as magical as Boston. I absolutely LOVE being a city girl. I enjoy getting lost in dreamy neighborhoods, looking at the architecture, and spending my time at the Museum of Fine Arts!

Favorite thing(s) about Tufts and/or Boston? I am inspired, supported, and uplifted by the community at Tufts and that has meant a lot to me as I navigate a new chapter of my life in a new city. I feel really lucky to have the resources and opportunities at Tufts to grow into the well-rounded dental providers we all aspire to be. My favorite thing about Boston is the mix of cultures and history that make Boston the unique city that it is.

Fun Fact(s) about yourself and/or hobbies? Art has always been a part of my life growing up and now it's my favorite way to relax and create space for myself. I also love hiking and spending time outdoors!
