I just graduated from Rhode Island College this past May with a BA in English and two minors in Writing and Film. One of my favorite things that I did while in school was an honors thesis that took two years to complete and totaled around 52 pages once it was finished. The paper was an analysis of gender performance in Disney's beast fables and it is by far my greatest academic achievement. I like to mention this because it is something that I think is really unique about me and I find that it is usually a good ice breaker (and I love to talk about it, so by all means - ask away!)
I also co-founded a local sorority in 2009 with one of my life-long best friends and have been an active participant in Greek life ever since. I saw my organization through the national colonization process last spring where we were officially recognized as a chapter of National Panhellenic Council sorority, Alpha Sigma Tau. I am really passionate about Greek life and all of the good that it can do for both the community as well as each individual member. I have watched women grow tremendously in their confidence and leadership ability with every passing semester and I give my sorority a lot of credit for the assertive, hyper-organized, "take action" kinda gal I have become. I am still actively involved as the Recruitment Advisor for my chapter, trying to spread the word about the positive influence of Greek life and help my sisterhood grow.
I love spending time with my family and friends and I try to live a happy, simple life but that usually doesn't wok out too well because I love to stay busy and have my hands in multiple projects at once. I am currently working as an administrative assistant for the United Way and I am obsessed with my job. I am also beginning to look at graduate programs so I can travel and expand my education - I am a Rhode Islander born and raised but I am not interested in being trapped here forever!
