Favorite Local Shop or Restaurant

I love going to BJ's Brewhouse on Joppa Road! It is a restaurant and their pizookies (pizza cookies with ice cream) are literally amazing! It's also close to the movie theater, with other really nice restaurants surrounding it so catching dinner and a movie is always a fun thing to do on the weekends or even during a week night when you're not super busy and looking for something to do off campus.

Why did you choose Towson University?

I choose Towson University for two reasons. The first is that TU is a really good education school and one of the largest producers of teachers in the state. Their education program is rigorous and I'm excited to be apart of it. My other reason is their study abroad program. TU really prides itself on welcoming national students and encouraging its students to study abroad as well, which is something I've wanted to do since I was in middle school. Hopefully, I'll finally be able to do it during my time here at Towson.

Favorite Spot on Campus

My favorite spot on campus (dining wise) is definitely Au Bon Pain. You will probably always find me there during lunch because it is my go to spot for food. Otherwise, I do spend a lot of time in West Village Commons simply because it is closer to where I live on campus and is a great study spot for myself.

After graduation I want to …

Become an elementary school teacher! I've always loved working with kids so I really want to become a teacher of young minds. I also hope that my skills in ASL could help me when working with Deaf or Hard of Hearing children in school.
