Hello! I am a junior double majoring in Linguistics and French & Francophone Studies, with a planned minor in Computer Science. I am a member of the Brandeis Quadball team. I studied abroad in Summer of 2022 in Arles, France and it was magnificent. I plan on studying abroad again in the south of France for a semester in the future. In my free time I love to play the piano, hangout with friends, be outdoors, play board games, and read. Fun fact: I've traveled to over 20 countries!

I am a senior majoring in Biology and HSSP with a minor in French. I am on the Brandeis Track and Field team and love to exercise and play sports in my free time. After college, I plan on taking a gap year where I want to move to Australia for a couple months and then go to medical school and become a doctor to help provide care for underserved populations. I love learning about French culture and hope to someday work in a French-speaking country.

I’m a sophomore studying French and Francophone Studies and Art History. On campus, I am involved in the Pottery Club and the Volleyball Club. I am an ice cream scooper, a waiter, and a barista off campus. I am planning on studying abroad in my junior year. After graduation, I want to pursue a Ph.D. program in Art History or French Literature and become a professor. I spend my time working out, going on hikes, fishing, running, and exploring Boston. Fun fact: I love shellfishing!
