Why I love working at Hampshire: The students amaze me with what they do with their time here—I learn something new everyday! The FARMSHARE in the fall!!! Beautiful scenery, fall in New England, the community, and we don't believe in standardized testing!

Best College Admissions Advice: Be yourself. Be open-minded- look beyond the rankings. Don't be afraid to try something new or be different. Also, we "admissions people" are not "cold arbiters of your fate" (quoted from an email), we are actually real people who really do read your essays, papers, and look at your supplements—so don't be afraid to call us or email us!

Best-kept secret at Hampshire: I LOVE popcorn (especially cooked in coconut oil over stovetop with salt) and here at Hampshire, I always get a farmshare. With that, we have the luxury of taking home Mr. Warner's popcorn—it's just so good! I share it with my mom every winter when I go home to Florida. Learn more about Mr. Warner's popcorn here:

A random fact about me: I haven't owned a TV since I was 16 years old.

Shows I'm binge-watching: I only binge watch Orange is the New Black in June.

Favorite spot in the Pioneer Valley: Mt. Tom and the Quabbin.

A skill I'm trying to learn: Conversational Spanish.

My favorite way to procrastinate: Doing something creative like write a poem or song, or sudden urge to clean/organize.

Nothing will ever take the place of an experience.
Not even this website.
