When asked what advice she would give a first-year entering Wellesley she says, “Come ready to learn, enjoy, and fully participate in one of the most wonderfully challenging times of your life. Bring only two things: courage and an open mind. Bring courage to take risks, trust yourself, and feel deserving of the regard and camaraderie that awaits you. Bring an open mind in order to appreciate the experiences and opportunities unique to this diverse, welcoming community that is Wellesley College.”
