Hey! I’m Symone and I will be a Sophomore here at UMass this upcoming fall. I’m an English major and a Education/Linguistics minor (I’m not quite sure yet). I do know that I plan on using my degree to teach English as a Second Language. I came to UMass undeclared, but I got involved with ESL instruction through UMass’ wide variety of community service opportunities, and have been in love with it since. I am also a member of the Not Ready for Bedtime Players, a comedy troupe on campus that focuses on sexual health education. My favorite part about Umass is its wide variety of activities. From RSO events to Intramural Sports, there’s always something fun going on to participate in. I’m looking forward to seeing what Amherst/Northampton has to offer this summer, from tea shops to live music and art events that happen right here in Western Mass!
