How has Dickinson prepared you for your future?

Dickinson has allowed me to explore my academic interests fully. While taking courses in classics, I have honed my critical thinking and problem solving skills. Dickinson inspired me to be even more outspoken on issues that I care about and pushed me to continue to be an engaged citizen.

Internship Experience

I first interned at a Los Angeles County Courthouse. There, I was doing legal aid work in family and housing law. The next two summers, I interned at Dun & Bradstreet in Malibu, California. I served as a digital marketing intern on the global paid-media team. I have continued to work for Dun & Bradstreet in a part-time capacity throughout my senior year.

What are some of the defining moments of your Dickinson experience?

I have loved all of my classical studies courses at Dickinson. I especially enjoyed my Ancient Greek classes with Professor Scott Farrington and my Roman Satire senior seminar with Professor Christopher Francese. I also had an incredible experience studying abroad in Rome, Italy at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies (ICCS).
