My favorite class at Clark has been my Introduction to Socio-cultural anthropology class. It was taught by Amber Murray, a researcher of resource sustainability and development. She was only at Clark for a year before needing to return to Cameroon, however she was an incredible educator. Her class changed the way I think about everything in my life and has by far been the most important in my learning about development.
The thing that makes me feel alive is music. I grew up around live music as a lot of my family plays in a band. Finding the exact right song for what you are feeling or the exact moment you're in is what I strive for. When I achieve it is when I feel my most alive. My favorite thing is to go to live shows!
Right now, I am working on my honors thesis in the international development department. I am writing about the intersection of menstrual health and migration. I am just getting started so I have a lot left to go.
My favorite thing to do in Worcester is to eat! Right near Clark, there is an El Salvadorian restaurant, a Vietnamese restaurant, a thai restaurant, and a sushi restaurant. They all have such good food and really affordable to eat at. I go out to eat as often as my bank account allows me. If it is warm out, it is also an excuse to walk outside in the beautiful weather.
