I love to plan, and my planning addiction manifests itself in lists. I live off of lists — lists of places I want to visit before I’m thirty, lists of foods I should try, lists of networking contacts, and lists of companies where I would be honored to work. I am going into my middler year (aka. I have some time before these plans become reality), but maybe it’s the thrill of the chase.
My compulsive list-making keeps me in perpetual state of being both nervous and excited. I’m nervous/excited. Nervecited? (I’m also into combining words. Once, in a blaze of glory, I combined the words “sweet potato” and “tater tot” to create the word equivalent of Optimus Prime, “sweet potatertot.” That kept me going for days.)
Here are a few quick facts about me:
- Northeastern University middler studying International Affairs, Social Entrepreneurship, and Writing
- Completed co-op in Spring 2013 at Institute for Healthcare Improvement
- Contributing writer for Levo League, Your Coffee Break, & The Knurd
This fall, I’m packing my bags and heading to Edinburgh, Scotland for a semester abroad. You can follow my travels (if you’re into that sort of thing) at www.moreawesomer.wordpress.com.
I love being part of the vibrant Northeastern community, and I look forward to tapping in to this community to help students make the most of what Northeastern has to offer. Career development is something I am incredibly excited about — Northeastern is full of amazing talent, and giving students the resources to showcase that talent can lead to some life-changing career opportunities.
