Class of 2021
International Relations and Economics
My name is Polly Nguyen.
I grew up in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, and I move to Boston in 2017 to attend Boston University.
I majored in International Relations and Economics, and I will be graduating this May.
|Reading||I often spend time reading novels or stories, and my genres choice changes often. I used to buy physical books, but now rely on my Kindle or other online platforms to find new things to read.||Here are some links to buy/find books:
|Hiking||I have some family members living in California, so I often spend my summer and winter breaks visiting them. During my stay, we often went hiking through some nearby trails such as Big Sur. I don't do this activity in Boston because I can't drive and I'm not familiar with the nearby trails.||My family and I often used Alltrails to find new hiking trails or to read reviews on popular spots. BU also have the BU Outing Club that students can use to find hiking partners.|
|Playing Video Games||I usually play games when I cannot find new books to read. I first got interested in playing games through Pokemon, so I usually choose games that are similar to that genre. I recently bought a Switch, so now I have a portable console that I can use to play the newest games.||BU Gaming Club is a good club to find fellow students who enjoy games of all types.|
|Cooking||Since I live off-campus, I usually cook most of my meals. The time and interest I have for cooking have definitely increased during quarantine, and I usually make familiar or traditional dishes that I grew up on.||I often ask my family for recipes or use Allrecipes to find recipes online. Thrive Market is a good organization to look for grocery subscription and delivery.|
