I’m Lawrence, a freshman at Dartmouth college! I come from the Boogey-Down Bronx in one of the biggest cities in the world: New York City. I’m an intended Mechanical Engineering and Arabic Double Major and a Musical Theatre Minor. Alongside working at the office of Undergraduate Admissions, I work for the Thayer School of Engineering Machine Shop where I actively help current engineering students and professors work on projects and tasks for their classes and group projects. I love giving back to my community and helping out as much as I can. My hobbies are acting, singing, dancing, and collecting and I actively pursue opportunities to do these all on campus! Dartmouth has become such an amazing environment and home for me that I enjoy every waking moment that I am on this campus!

To date, one of my favorite experiences has been my study abroad term in Berlin, but I have countless memorable experiences and would love to share them with you!
