Beginning of a Great Semester!

My winter break was a blast! I went back to my sweet home Guadeloupe. The weather was amazing (almost 100degrees everyday), I was happy to see my family again, and finally I played a lot of tennis to stay in shape and be ready for two big tournaments. The tournaments did not go as well as I wanted, but I definitely took positive thoughts out of it. My break was productive and I loved it. Now I am back to Boston, and ready to spend a great semester. This semester I am taking organic chemistry, a really challenging class, and an interesting honors class called Paths to Principled Leadership with Professor Betters-Reed. I chose to be part of this class, because I am a pre-med student, and I believe that often we stay really close to the scientific field because of the requirement, but we miss out on classes that build character like this one. So, I am really happy to discover how the class is going to contribute to my personal growth as a person. I am happy to be back at Simmons, close to my friends, and closer to my dream every single day! I LOVE SIMMONS! :)
