Q&A

Hometown: Cranford, NJ

Why did you choose your major?

I have been singing since I was eight years old, so music has always been something that I have loved.  I took a few physics courses in high school, and for whatever reason, I feel in love with physics too. I had an excellent physics teacher in high school whose passion for the science was contagious. With these two very different majors, I hope to learn more about the physics of sound. 

What do you do for a campus job or work study?

I am a Peer Mentor and the Executive Director of Traditions and School Spirit and Mainstage Events for the Student Events Board.

What is your favorite place on campus?

My favorite place on campus is in the WACappella rehearsal room. Getting to sing with these incredible people is truly the best and most laughter-filled hours of my week. No matter how my day has been, they can always put a smile on my face!
