What do you love about your Tucker program?
I love BBBS because it doesn't feel like an obligation-honesty it's a ton of fun! I love having a little Sib who teaches me about lacrosse and popular teen novels. And we get to explore the Upper Valley! It's great to get off campus and see the community.
What would you say to a student who is thinking about becoming involved with Tucker?
I would absolutely encourage you to explore the Tucker programs- there's a program for everyone! If you choose the right program, spirituality, service and/or social justice will never feel like work. Even though I was barely involved in community service in high school I think it's one of my defining experiences at Dartmouth. So give it a shot!
How has your Tucker Foundation Experience affected you?
My experience has affected me profoundly- I really see myself as a role model and a resource for my Little Sib. I've also learned so much about backgrounds other than my own.
What is one fun fact about you?
I can recognize most Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavors by taste alone.
