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.
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!
The most meaningful place in campus for me is the Alden Quad, which is the green-space outside of of Dana and Hughes hall. I lived in Dana Hall with all of my best friends my sophomore year. We spent a lot of time on this quad sledding, building snowmen, having picnics, and playing games. It is meaningful to me because it is a space where I feel at home and like I am with my family.
