Gender Identity: Female
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Graduation Year: 2020, I came the second semester because I was part of the “Febs”
High School Experience: Private school in Baltimore, MD with a graduating class of about 100 students. There was a culture of going to college.
First-Generation College Student: No
Minor: None yet. As of now, I’m interested in environmental studies. It’s a very environmentally conscious school.
Extracurricular Activities: I am part of Midd Masti, which is a Bollywood style dance group; Feminist Action at Middlebury; I’m a tour guide; I play JV women’s lacrosse; and I do some of the things that Outdoors Programs puts on.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
I joined Midd Masti during the first week of classes because my orientation leader was part of it. It’s one hour a week on Monday nights and is really fun and relaxed. I was the only first-year Feb there, and I didn’t know any of them. Now I’m friends with all the sophomores, it was a great way to step out of the bubble and helped jump-start my life at Middlebury.
