I came to St. Lawrence somewhat begrudgingly because I didn't want to follow my brother or my dad to their college, but fell in love with everything about campus. While my intent was to pursue creative writing, I wound up really head over heels for Shakespeare. I studied abroad in Ireland the summer of 2013 and I'm currently working on my senior honors project with Sarah Barber about the relationship between Shakespeare and Ireland.
