I’m a 28-year-old university student, living in New Jersey. I graduated from high school in 2002, and instead of wandering around the halls of college for a few years without knowing exactly what to do, I went to work for a few years. I returned full-time to my education in 2007, and will graduate in 2013 from Rutgers University with a double bachelors degree in History (with honors) and French, and a triple minor in German, European Studies and Women Studies. I’m a member of Phi Alpha Theta (National History Honors Society), Phi Beta Kappa (oldest liberal arts society in the country) and Athenaeum, the honors society for the Camden College of Arts and Sciences. I list all those things mostly because I don’t get a lot of sleep and I worked really hard for those accomplishments.
I spend way too much of my free time reading romance novels and playing pub quiz with friends. I’ve been fortunate enough, through Rutgers, to travel to the south of France, Paris, and London over the last two years. I can fumble through French, German and a little bit in Italian, which I started learning this summer. My plans after graduation in the spring are to attend graduate school in London and get my masters degree, before pursuing my Ph.D, either at home or abroad (but preferably abroad because I effin’ love Europe). I’ve got two cats, too many books and too much of tendency for sarcasm.
