What did you study at NYU?

I earned a B.A. in Global Liberal Studies with a concentration in Contemporary Culture and Creative Production and a minor in French. It was an exciting time because we - the Class of 2013 - were the first class to be accepted as GLS majors and go through all four years of the program. It also required a year of study abroad which I was very excited about!

Do you have a favorite memory from your time at NYU?

When I was studying abroad at NYU Paris, there was a sponsored trip for students to the Dordogne region of France. It was the most incredible thing I did all four years. We visited several different caves that had prehistoric paintings in them, walked through an elaborate terraced garden, toured a medieval town, and ate delicious food - plus it was all paid for by the school. The way prehistoric people used the natural shape of the cave in their paintings to make them “move” with torchlight has stayed with me. I’d love to go back!
