What makes you feel most alive?

Going to the beach makes me feel most alive. Just because the beach is probably my favorite place on earth!

What's your favorite class at Clark?

My favorite class at Clark has been management 100. Even though I am a psychology major, I was interested in taking a management course and so far it has been my favorite class at Clark besides the classes that I have taken for my major. Not only was I able to learn and talk about management and business, but I also planned and hosted a fundraiser for a non-profit organization in Worcester. Alongside with my teammates, we discussed which non-profit organizations we felt most connected to and ended up choosing the Worcester Animal Rescue League. We decided we wanted to have a WII tournament as our fundraiser, where students gave a donation to enter in the tournament and they could enjoy food, music and other games as they took part in the tournament. Not only where we able to have a fun event for Clark students, but we also raised money for an amazing non-profit organization in Worcester and were able to spread the word about the organization and the amazing work they do.

What's your favorite thing to do in Worcester?

There are a lot of things that I love to do in Worcester, but if I had to pick one, it's finding and trying out new restaurants. There are so many different restaurants in Worcester, and I have been lucky enough to be able to visit a majority of them. It's fun to gather your friends and pick a random restaurant that you have never been to before and test it out. It's especially fun when you find one where the food is amazing and it's also really cheap.

What is your most meaningful place on campus?

I would have to say that my most meaningful place on campus is the cafeteria. This is because I remember spending hours in the cafeteria my first year at Clark just having really deep conversations with my friends and getting to know them better and now they are my best friends. So I can confidently say that my friendships grew and blossomed in the cafeteria.
