Here in Honors I… work behind the scenes on special projects, like our freshman admissions process.

I like thinking about & studying… gender and why we think about it the way we think about it. How society functions, and what our responsibilities to each other are. How we can make our societies healthier for every single one of us. Climbing mountains and why the heck we do that. 

My first week in college… I attended my first Honors class, with Prof Clare Bright, and realized there was a whole discipline, language and community that gave voice to how I understood and conceptualized the world. Thanks, Women Studies! I’ve never looked back.
