What's your favorite class at Clark?

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.

What makes you feel most alive?

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!

What are you currently working on?

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.

What's your favorite thing to do in Worcester?

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.
