My favorite Brandeis tradition is...

My favorite Brandeis tradition is Kindness Week, where we celebrate a week of acts of kindness and fun events! I love this tradition because it brings members of the Brandeis community together to celebrate kindness and appreciate each other!

I chose Brandeis because, as an international student who has grown up in Zambia and India, being a part of a diverse and supportive community has always been important to me. The community here is incredibly warm, kind, and it truly feels like home!

My favorite activity outside of class is...

My favorite activity outside of class is volunteering with the Waltham Group's Language and Cultural Enrichment program. I volunteer as a tutor and homework helper in English and Spanish to students from Waltham Middle Schools. It is a wonderful way to volunteer with other Brandeis students and work with the community in Waltham.
