Hi! My name is Allie, and my hometown is Chicago, Illinois. I am planning to study Comparative Literature, but I have strong interests in just about everything, including mathematics, economics, French, the sciences, and creative writing. I love learning about interdisciplinary approaches to studying culture, especially by combining literature and art. Music is also a huge part of my life, as I play the violin, conduct, and work with several ensembles on and off campus! I also volunteer with the Trenton Youth Orchestra, where I coach sectionals and teach individual private lessons. In the future, I want to study abroad, pursue postgraduate scholarships, and see where in the world life takes me!
