Any internship you may have done or are looking to do?
During my Spring semester sophomore year, I worked at my favorite place: Walt Disney World.  It was a dream come true.  Currently, I'm the Event Intern for a Non-profit and in the future hope to intern at a Special Events Company.

Why did you choose Lasell?
I chose Lasell because of the community and the Connected Learning. It's so important to get experience before you graduate.

What is your favorite Connected Learning project/experience so far?
My favorite Connected Learning Experience is the opportunity I have to plan Hospitality Day here on campus. I get to plan an event - which is what I want to do after graduation - that will benefit our students.

What is your favorite Lasell event or tradition?
My favorite Lasell event is bingo.

What do you like to do off campus or in Boston?
I like to go into the city to shop, eat, and walk around with friends.

What is your favorite class so far and why?
My favorite class so far has been my HON 101 class, Riddle of Gender. I learned invaluable information, and it was discussion-based, which I loved. Still to this day, I have a good relationship with my professor and the other students in that class.   

What has been your favorite memory so far at Lasell?
So far at Lasell, my favorite memory has been the opportunity to go on an International Shoulder to Shoulder Trip to Mexico. I got to meet wonderful people and be immersed in a culture I wouldn't normally be able to; I will never forget that trip.

If you could tell a prospective student why they should come to Lasell, what would you say?
If you want a school where you are treated like a person, can be yourself, and have endless opportunities, Lasell is for you.
