Meet the Tower APTs
Tower APT Coordinator
Bio: Hello! My name is Wendy and I am the APT for Tower Complex and Wellesley Plus. I am originally from Kingston, Jamaica but I have lived in Springfield, Massachusetts since I was four years old. I am a senior studying Women’s and Gender Studies and Biological Sciences. I also plan to attend medical school after graduating from Wellesley. I love to try food from different cultures. My favorite TV sitcom is The Office. An interesting fact about me is that I love reading. I can spend hours in Barnes and Nobles looking through books that I have already read and books that interest me. Before graduation, I want to purchase all of my favorite books from high school and college to build a mini library.
Bio: My name is Arlevea, I love to be called “Leevee”, and I am the Academic Peer Tutor (APT) for Severance Hall. I was born in Atlanta, Georgia but have lived in Chicago, Illinois for eleven years. I am a rising sophomore majoring in both Economics and Mathematics. My plans after Wellesley are to dive into investment banking and earn an MBA. My favorite movie is “Meet the Robinsons”, for I love the idea of “Keep Moving Forward” no matter how many times things do not turn out as you would like. An interesting fact about me is that I started an eco-friendly organization company while in high school, so if you need help decorating or organizing your room I would be glad to help!
Tower Court West APT
Bio: Hi, my name is Frances and I am the APT for Tower Court West this year. I am from Nanjing, China. I am a sophomore and a potential economics major. I am involved in the Wellesley College Choir, the Investment Society and the Debate Society. I love singing, travelling and learning about different cultures. I just spent the entire summer in France and I would love to visit Korea sometime soon. My biggest goal for life is to travel around the world and master as many languages as possible. I love Wellesley and I hope that I can help you make the most out of your Wellesley experience. I look forward to working with you all this year, getting to know you and hearing your stories. Feel free to come visit me in my room or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will have a great year together!
Tower Court East APT
Bio: Welcome to Wellesley! I’m Caroline, the APT for Tower Court East. I am a member of the Class of 2014 and double-majoring in computer science and economics. I have lived in Topsfield, Massachusetts, which is the home of the oldest fair in America, for my entire life. I love chocolate, reading good books, and swimming. Wellesley has amazing courses and professors; my job is to help you to succeed in them by answering your questions about academics here. Please do not hesitate to send me an email at email@example.com or visit me in TCE 313 if you have questions, or even if you do not and just want to talk.
Bio: Hello! My name is Maanika, and I am the Academic Peer Tutor (APT) for Claflin Hall. I was born and raised in Southern California, and grew up in La Cañada Flintridge, California. I am a sophomore in the Class of 2015, and I am also involved on campus as a member of Wellesley’s Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) and as a volunteer with Chinatown Afterschool. I have also been involved with College Government (CG) Senate, Student Organization Funding Committee (SOFC), and House Council, so please feel free to ask me about any of those activities! I love meeting new people, trying new foods, playing the piano, and going to the beach. My favorite movie is Back to the Future, and my favorite TV shows are Friends, Scrubs, Modern Family, and How I Met Your Mother. I enjoy utopian and dystopian novels and my favorite book is Brave New World. I can’t wait to meet and get to know you all! Please know that my door is always open if you ever want to talk.
Wellesley Plus APT
Bio: Hi! My name is Christine and I am the APT for Wellesley Plus. I was born in Rome, Italy and lived in Shanghai and Hong Kong before moving to Los Angeles at the age of 4. I am an Econ major and I am interested in natural resource management in developing countries. This summer, I got a grant from the National Science Foundation to conduct water policy research in rural Northwest China, which really sparked my interest in education policy (particularly for women) in the villages of Shanxi province. In my spare time, I like to read (particularly fantasy/science fiction books), play board games (especially Settlers of Catan), and hang out with my friends. I enjoy simple pleasures: tea with honey, good conversations, catchy songs, fun historical facts, and a clever joke. A fun fact about me is that I know all the presidents of the United States in order of office (you can test me when you meet me). I look forward to meeting and getting to know all of you this coming year!
