AboutAs a five-year-old, I would constantly find myself collecting pennies and worms from off the ground, engrossed in anything I could find and wondering what drove it there. That passion for discovery and a love for writing and feeling good have made me very interested in writing about science and health. That and being a nerd. Since my days scouring the ground, I’ve spent my time being active and playing tennis, ultimate and running (occasionally). Reading and listening to music are two other means I use to get my groove back after a stressful week, making me ask myself, “Through what means can we improve our lives?” My drive also stems from the many interesting classes I’ve taken at Brandeis, where I'm currently pursuing my B.S. in biology. I am also the co-editor-in-chief for my Pre-Health Society’s publication and copy edit and write for the university's weekly newspaper. Interning at Greatist is a real treat for me! I’m also interning at Mt. Sinai Hospital this summer, learning how clinical research is conducted and witnessing the impact of nutrition at the clinical level. I hope to pursue a Master’s in nutrition after college and continue writing about what I love: food… err, healthy lifestyles. My most troublesome weakness is... Indecisiveness! With so many choices out there in the world, making decisions has always flustered me, being my penultimate quandary (the ultimate one being trying to find the best pizza place ever). I also can’t help but add my weakness of eating incredibly good food while at home in New York (Long Island represent!). I'm looking forward to learning more about... The biz and what it’s like to write science and health from a fun perspective. I also want to hone my ability to assess scholarly article validity and how to make a story more engaging. And I can’t forget to add how excited I am to see the bridge between online journalism and social media! Oh, and if I can learn how to do a wheel this summer, that would be dandy.
