Why did you choose your major?

I’ve always been a big fan of science and math, so knew right away I wanted to do something in those fields. I also love helping and working with children, so hopefully in the future I can use my major to become a pediatrician.

Favorite Chestertown Hangout: 

Whenever the weather is nice, I love to go down to the waterfront and relax on the pier. It’s always so beautiful and peaceful down there, and also a great place to study. Additionally it’s also a wonderful place to get a great tan. 

Favorite way to procrastinate:

Netflix, there’s literally nothing better than binge watching a show for hours. Napping is also one of my favorites.

Favorite thing to order at the Cove:

A Flatiron from Martha’s
