I feel like I’m living in the future even writing this. It feels like it was yesterday that I was applying for colleges aimlessly, worried about what would become of me after high school, and unsure of what the next steps were.
Summers in University (A Reflection and Guide)
The first summer break after my first year of college was one of the most shell-shocking seasons of my academic career. Some of my classmates were already doing internships while others pursed jobs. I, on the other hand, just used my summer break as a break! Is there a correct way to spend the summers […]
It’s Major Declaration Day!
Today, February 22nd, 2021, is scary, exciting, troubling, and stressful for a lot of us sophomores. Today, we officially declare our majors. And although the action is as simple as clicking a couple buttons on WebSTAC, it is a day where many of us have to sit down and think about our futures. Some people […]

What I’ll Miss About WashU
What better way to celebrate my last day as a Wash U student than to write about the things I’ll miss about Wash U (full disclosure: I’m writing this through tears).
From One Bear to (Hopefully) Another
Perhaps the question I hear most often—and always the one I dread answering the most—from prospective students is “Why did you choose WashU?” My apprehension has nothing to do with my inability to answer the question at all; instead, it has everything to do with my confidence in my ability to encapsulate everything that I […]
How I Fell in Love with Wash U
Hi again! I decided since I’m still new to WashU360 and there’s much you don’t know about me, it’d be helpful to share some of my story with you. As most of the audience reading this blog is incoming freshman and parents, I decided to tell you about how I discovered Wash U and why […]
Why Wash U
Before my junior year of high school, I attended a summer writing program that changed my life. Before I found the program, I had never even heard of Wash U. After I arrived on campus, however, I felt a sense of safety and comfort that I hadn’t experienced on any other college campus. That first […]
What I Learned During My First Semester
It has officially been a week into my second semester of college. Over winter break, I had some time to reflect on my first semester at WashU, so here are three things I learned during my first semester of college! Time management is key to getting things done. I know it’s been said by everyone […]
Study Abroad Adventures
This past spring, I studied abroad in Argentina through SIT’s Argentina: Social Movements and Human Rights Programs. It’s difficult to condense an entire semester into a few paragraphs, but I’ll try. To begin with, I was so nervous before I left. I dreaded getting on the plane because I was unsure of my Spanish skills […]
‘Summer days, slipping away’: My summer internships!
As I enjoy the last few days of my internships, I can’t believe how fast the time went by. I had a wonderful summer working for the Communications department at the Office of Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer as well as writing for a group of local newspapers. Here’s a bit more about what I worked on this summer!
My Scholarship Programs at WashU!
When I traveled to campus this time last year for Scholars Weekend, I thought that the merit scholarships I would be interviewed for were monetary awards and nothing else. However, as the weekend went by, I quickly realized that the program would be so much more than that. With Scholars Weekend fast approaching, here’s a look into my experience with my scholarships for those who might be about to arrive on campus as scholarship finalists!

A short list
Hello! Welcome to my first blog post. To help you learn a bit about me, in true WashU fashion, I created a list of essential facts about me that will give you a glimpse into my world.
Internship Stories: Surprise! You’re a Committee Head!
You can’t know everything about an internship from the application, and this was definitely the case with my internship at Summerbridge. The night I arrived in Hong Kong, I got an email saying that I was selected for a leadership position I didn’t even know existed.
