I chose Brandeis because...

at Brandeis, you can be literally anyone you want to be, try new things, and learn about yourself with a community that will never judge you or bring you down. Brandeis students are "academic and kind," and as an incoming first-year, that is what mattered.

My most memorable Brandeis experience?

My most memorable Brandeis Experience was Orientation 2021. I am an Orientation Leader and being able to meet so many new people who love Brandeis as much as I do and helping acclimate our first-year class were incredible meaningful.

My favorite place on campus, in Waltham or in Boston is...

Moody Street in Waltham! I love going with my friends for brunch at In a Pickle, Lizzy's ice cream, or Vietnamese food on a Saturday night.

My favorite Brandeis tradition is...

Kindness Day! I love Kindness Day because it really shows the essence of who we are as a community. All of the clubs get together to promote community, the entire campus is decorated, and we get to show our fellow Brandesians (whether it be staff, students, or faculty) how much we appreciate each other! <3

I'm passionate about...
