Activities and Interests

Activity Description Get Involved!


Painting can include many different types of paint and mediums. I started painting in high school, while I worked at a painting studio. I particularly enjoy painting using acrylic and watercolor paints.

A great way to get started is through painting camps or classes, at studios such as, Yaymaker or Paitning with a Twist.


Cooking has always been an interest of mine. With more time at home during the pandemic, I was able to experiment and try new foods and recipes. Now, I am able to cook dinners for my friends and roommates here on campus.

A great website to find a variety of recipes that range in difficulty is Tasty!


I enjoy fitness and have gotten more involved recently through fitness classes. I've taken classes such as: HIIT, Yoga, Spin, etc.. It's an enjoyable way to workout while staying motivated with a group of people!

I currently use the BU FitRec FitPass, which gives access to 20+ classes a week.
