Why did you choose to attend Middlebury? I chose Middlebury because I grew up in a city and knew I wanted to spend four years somewhere beautiful. I have also always loved studying languages, and knew that was one of Middlebury’s strong suits. When I was deciding between two schools, I made numerous pro/con lists, and I just couldn’t decide. So I flipped a coin and when it landed on the other school my heart sank, and that is how I knew that deep down I wanted to be at Middlebury!

One fun fact about you or unknown talent you have: I love to sew! I worked in fashion this summer and spent a lot of my time sewing fabric scraps into little jewelry bags.
