Ambassador at Emory University
Class of 2026
Hometown: Ansonia, CT
Spending time with my friends in a residential lounge, organizing events for first-generation students in the Office of Belonging and Community Justice (BCJ), or in the hallway before the Matheson Reading Room, which is my favorite place to study since it's very quiet and has a nice view of the campus.
Visit popular tourist destinations, such as the Coca Cola Factory, and try new restaurants. Atlanta is a huge cultural hub and has a rich history, so I plan to experience as much of the city as I can.
Sociology 101 has been my most impactful class so far. It was the one class where I actually enjoyed the readings because it discussed and provided a name to a lot of social phenomena I have experienced in my life. This made the material, in my opinion, both relevant and important. I found myself highly engaged with the lectures, and my interest in sociology was piqued. I plan on taking similar classes in the future.
My favorite Emory tradition is definitely SongFest! It was initially awkward to be singing and dancing with people you just met. But, once I just went with it and had fun, I really enjoyed it. Also, the energy during the day of the event is insane, with the halls chanting together and dissing each other inside the WoodPEC. It was an exciting start to my Emory journey and is one experience I'll never forget!
