    Hello sweet babes! 

    I'm Gina and I'm from Shrewsbury, MA. I'm a rising Junior here at UMass Amherst in the College of Natural Sciences (CNS). My major is Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and I am also pursuing a Chinese language minor. In my free time I participate in the Chinese Conversation Club, Biochem club, and WMUA, the campus radio station, where my roommate and I will hopefully host a weekly show this summer! I also work for the campus sustainability department as a Minute Rider where I ride a bike around campus and pick up compost from various staff rooms. The best part about UMass is that you can use your UCard debit to buy Antonio's. I'm super psyched to spend my summer in Amherst with all of you! My goals are to sunbathe, swim, read, speak Chinese, fish, learn to skateboard and make lots of friends (not limited to humans) :~)
    Gina's favorite plant: weeping willow 
    Gina is listening to: Animal Collective, Kanye West, Anderson Paak, Das Racist, ABBA, Father John Misty, & Streetlight Manifesto 
    Gina is reading: Miles from Nowhere by Nami Mun & Infinite Jest (again).
    Gina is watching: The Sopranos, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (always), Trailer Park Boys (new season 10) & Game of Thrones
    Something funky about me: I have a great relationship with all cats despite the fact that I am a bird
