My favorite high school athletic moment is:

Winning the first ever girl’s basketball state championship title my senior year in the school’s history.


My favorite class or professor at Brandeis is:

Introduction to Literary Studies [with Laura Quinney] because it’s the first step in becoming an English major, and also because I really enjoy the literature we read in class.


I chose Brandeis because:

I knew I would be challenged both academically and athletically and I also love the campus and the community feel of Brandeis.


My favorite meal at Brandeis or in Waltham is:

the gyro from Wilson’s Diner.
