Class of 2022

I’m majoring in Politics and minoring in both French and Francophone Studies as well as Legal Studies. I am a Brandeis Ambassador/tour guide, a member of the Waltham Group for both Companions to Elders and Kids Connection, a member of TAMID (the business club on campus) and I also work for Brandeis's Phonathon for the Office of Institutional Advancement. I am planning on studying abroad in the Spring of 2021 in Paris (hopefully). Post-graduation I hope to either go straight to law school or work for a real-estate development firm in either Boston or New York City. In my free time, I love traveling with family and friends, volunteering with members of my community and continuously listening to lots of music. Fun Fact: I love watching John Hughes films!
