Q: Why Connecticut College?
A: The great academics combined with many extracurricular opportunities, as well as the supporting and friendly environment.

Q: Why did you decide to study mathematics?
A: For me, mathematics is a beautiful subject requiring nothing but your ability to think creatively and use your intuition the right way. I was fascinated by this science in high school. My desire to learn more about it led me to get involved with math competitions. When I came to Connecticut College, I was eager to continue.

Q: What role has the College's career development and funded internship program (CELS) played for you?
A: CELS helped me a lot while I was applying for internships. The counselors are absolutely fantastic and I cannot say how grateful I am to them for helping me land my dream internship as an actuary in Liberty Mutual's headquarters in Boston. I did this internship in my sophomore year and was invited back the following summer – an offer I was thrilled and excited to accept.
