High School Experience: From outside of Boston and was homeschooled. I spent a lot of time with 20 or 30 other homeschooled students in the area.
First Generation College Student: No
Major: Linguistics (A Tri-College Department)

Extracurricular Activities: Freshman and Sophomore years I was in Chamber Singers, which is a small, more advanced choir. I am in an acapella group. I’m very involved in musical theater, playing in the pit orchestra and helping direct a musical. I’ve done some political activism work, especially freshman and sophomore years, with a group called the Bi-Co Anti-Capitalists. With them, we got involved in changing the pay-period for student workers on campus from monthly to bi-weekly.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Last spring was the first time I’d done theater stuff since middle school. One of my friends asked me to play in the pit orchestra and that was my first intro to theater in a long time. Seeing that process come together, even as somebody who wasn’t in the main part of the show, was amazing to see. Another one of my friends told me about directing workshops in the fall and applied for it and found that I really love putting together scenes, staging, and all the aspects of putting on a show. I have become a lot more interested in musical theater and have met several of my best friends through it.
