Favorite LitJ story: "The Road Is Very Unfair," by Ted Conover

Next destination: Spain this Spring with study abroad, and, I hope, India for this year's Holi Festival, or Festival of Colors!

Future plans: Reporter or contributor to The Nature Conservancy or National Geographic after I gain a few years of experience in the field. And maybe I will start with grad school!

Recommended reading for everyone and why: Random Family by Adrian Nicole LeBlanc, because it details the plight of the Puerto Rican community in the Bronx, offering compelling portraits of several families shaped by inner-city poverty in the late 80s and 90s. Raw, impactful, and innovative.
