WHY I CHOSE WES: 
 I'm a transfer student from New York University, and after a year of being in the city, I realized that I wanted to go to a small liberal arts school. After visiting Wesleyan, I couldn't stop thinking about the beautiful campus, the open curriculum, the emphasis on diversity, and the large amount of student organizations. After being here for two years, I know that I made the right decision.
ACADEMIC
INTERESTS:
I am absolutely fascinated with why people do the things that they do. That's a huge reason why I'm majoring in Psychology. I have been taking classes that look to explain individual's behavior and the physiology behind it. 
FAVORITE CLASS:

Prison Outreach Through Theater. We literally went to a prison and taught Shakespeare to inmates. 

CAMPUS
ACTIVITIES:
This upcoming semester, I will be Senior Class President. I will also be serving on the Wesleyan Student Assembly, the Middletown Relations Committee, and the Student Budget Committee. Weekly, I volunteer at local Senior Centers with WesAge, and at the Green Street Arts Center afterschool program. When I can, I am a contributing writer for the Arts section of our school newspaper, the Argus. This will also be my second year working in Residential Life. 
WHY I CHOSE TO BE A TOUR GUIDE:
I have an abundance of pride for Wesleyan and I talk about how amazing it is every chance I get. As a transfer student, I know how important it is to be at a school that is right for you. I want to help students make an educated decision and hopefully get them excited about Wes!
FAVORITE MOVIES:
Hercules
Capote
FAVORITE SONGS:
Gotta Keep Your Head Up by Andy Grammar
Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
How Far We've Come by Matchbox Twenty
FUN FACT:
I brought a horse with me to school! He lives in a barn 5 minutes away from campus, near Wadsworth Mansion.
