What are your favorite aspects of the RCAH experience?
The invigorating community of professors, students and faculty. The engaging class subjects. The emphasis on critical thinking rather than memorization.

Writing, reading, travelling, listening to music, basketball, soccer, golf, tennis and anything that involves close friends and meeting new people.

What are your future plans?
I plan on teaching abroad at an international school, Teach for America, pursuing a PhD in Educational Policy, publishing writing and looking for other opportunities that interest me.
