Favorite place on campus:
Zebi! Once you have tried one of their delicious sandwiches, you will be hooked.

My fondest memory is dancing at Celtics games with the dance team I was a part of. I love to dance and being a part of such an inspirational group really helped me have the best four years!

Tips for high school seniors: 
Explore everything! Make mistakes, pursue your passions, meet new people and you will end up right where you were meant to be.  

Last great book you read:
I am addicted to The Hunger Games Series. It is my go-to read for any occasion. 

Most played song on your ipod:
It really depends on the day. It can range from Holy Grail by Jay-Z ft. Justin Timberlake to Holding onto you by Twenty One Pilots. I choose songs based on my life at the moment. 

Where would you like to travel:
After graduating undergrad, I backpacked through Greece, Italy, and France.  I would love to backpack the rest of Europe! It was such an amazing adventure, I cannot wait to go back!

One thing about you that may surprise your colleagues:
I don’t know how to whistle! It is on my list of things to perfect. 

One great discovery you’ve made on Merrimack’s campus:
The Media Center located in the basement of the library. It is hidden gem that houses so many interesting pieces of art and offers numerous resources to support creativity. 

What makes Merrimack the place to be:
Merrimack is a home away from home. The students, faculty, and staff are all part of a close-knit community, focused on supporting each other in any aspect of your life.
