Interview by Zoe Fisher ’15
On Campus and Off Campus Activities:
SAW, Customs Person, Hall Adviser, Psychology of Research Internship at NYU, Internship at a non nonprofit that promoted rights for women and at a South Asian Women society.
Long Term Goals:
I’m interested in mental health in children. I would like to get some outside experience before continuing my education and getting a masters in counseling service.
Key Lessons From LEAP:
LEAP taught me about conflict management and made it easier to handle group management with conflicts in a group later when I was so involved in SAW. Also, it taught me the right vocabulary to use when it comes to leadership when you may be talking about your comfort zone or conflict management.
Proudest Accomplishment at Bryn Mawr:
The relationships I have made with people. I don’t know if I will ever get the opportunity to be in such a tight knit community and be close with professors and students all at once.
Biggest Challenge While at Bryn Mawr:
From being an HA, I saw one of my challenges in dealing with other people’s issues. I was so sensitive to other people that I had to figure out how to balance my personal relationship and being a good HA. Although it was a challenge, and that may be a weakness, it was also seen as a strength for me because I was able to be sensitive to other’s issues.
Most Memorable Moments at Bryn Mawr:
Traditions: Lantern night and may day were my two favorites. Praxis III was also memorable because it is really necessary to learn your major outside of books and theories, and I was able to be close with adviser here and supervisor at internship through Praxis.
Advice for Underclassmen:
Don’t get too caught up with work, take opportunities that are given, know what it means to have fun, actively try to get to know a professor that you like.
