Why I love working at Hampshire: I am a living representation of why Hampshire is considered one of the "Colleges That Change Lives!" My story and life experiences would not have been possible without the opportunities that Hampshire has helped me access.

Title of my Division III project: Alternative Education and Adolescent Development of Inner City and Public School Youth

Best-kept secret at Hampshire: Definitely check out the Eric Carle Museum at least once. Not a secret but... SHOUT OUT TO THE JAMES BALDWIN SCHOLARS PROGRAM!!!

A random fact about me: I think Nina Simone and Lauryn Hill are the greatest musical artists of all time!

Favorite spot in the Pioneer Valley: Both Holyoke and Springfield are full of so much historical culture. Birthplace of volleyball (Holyoke) and birthplace of basketball (Springfield)! Springfield was also one of the first places to outlaw the recapture of runaway slaves and so much more!
