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.
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!
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.
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.
