What's your favorite class at Clark?

My favorite class is Queer Horror, taught by Professor Jen Plante; it's an interdepartmental first-year intensive course that takes a critical look at how homophobia and transphobia have been perpetrated through the horror genre in western literature and film. Jen is such a knowledgeable, humorous, and kind professor, and I was able to learn so much through class discussion and feedback on my papers.

What makes you feel most alive?

I feel most alive whenever I get to experience emotional depth with others- connecting (whether it be by laughing, crying, or just talking) is what brings my life joy and meaning.

What are you currently working on?

In addition to work and school, I am currently working on becoming my warmest and also most powerful self.

What's your favorite thing to do in Worcester?

I love to explore by walking or running, and I also love to try out new diners with my friends.
