Why did you choose your major at Lasell?
I chose Lasell because I had an amazing phone interview with an admission counselor, and when I first came to campus he was there to help me and showed me around. I felt like a name and not a number which was something I really wanted in a college.

What was it that brought you to Lasell?
I heard about the education program here and I have always loved Massachusetts so it felt like a good match.

What activities are you involved in or have been involved in (clubs, activities, athletics, etc.)? 
I work for the Education Department using various technology platforms as well assisting Professors with any technical support

Any internship you may have done, or are looking to do?
I've worked in school for my practicums and each time I came back a more informed individual.

Favorite class you have taken at Lasell and why?
Calculus and Intro to Teaching, I love math and when I took Calculus with Prof. Donovan, I just loved it even more. Numbers are amazing and I always find myself getting lost in them and trying to figure out different way to manipulate them.

What do you like to do off campus or in Boston?
Going to Newbury street is always a plus! I always try and get lost on Newbury because there is always something to do there so you will never be bored

Do you have an interesting story or great memory from Lasell that you would be willing to share?
My greatest memory at Lasell was during my freshman year, each of my Professors were all very welcoming but I especially remember Prof. LaCure. I struggles with the transition from High School to College and he was very helpful and was always will to have a chat with me and ask me how I was doing and if I needed anything which I thought was amazing.
