Describe your major in five words:
Transcendence or “Corrupting the Youth.”
What was one thing that surprised you most about your major?
Before studying philosophy in Smith, I used to think that only western philosophy counted as “Philosophy.” I did not expect to learn so much about non-western traditions and religions in Smith. The courses in the philosophy department definitely de-eurocentrize this discipline and make me believe that philosophy should diversify.

What spot on campus will you miss the most?
Definitely Seelye where I spent most of my time either with professors or my friends. I will miss the shade of the trees in the afternoon and the light in room 101 at midnight.
Where was your favorite place for dinner?
I do not have a favorite place for dinner but I love the fabulous view of Paradise Pond and the grass behind Park House where you can sit and relax after dinner.
What do you wish other people knew about the class of 2022?
We made it through the pandemic. We are tough.
What do you think has been the most “Smithie” thing you’ve done in life so far?
Explaining my paper to the sculpture outside Hillyer Library at 1:00 a.m. and asking for their feedback.
