Hello friends! I'm officially back for one last year of blogging! I am so honored and excited to spend one last year in this corner of the blogosphere, and I'm so glad you stumbled onto my page! Welcome.
For those of you who haven't met me, my name is Marah Brubaker, and I'm a senior here at Amherst. I've been blogging for the Admissions Office for almost two years (you can check out my past blogs here and here if you're interested!), and I'm thrilled to be back for one last year! I'm originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania (and hope to end up back in PA after graduation!). Here at Amherst, I'm a double major in Anthropology and Sexuality, Women's, & Gender Studies (or SWAGS), and I'm also pursuing the Five College Certificate in Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice. On campus, I've been singing a capella with the Amherst DQ for 4 years now (check us out!). I also love playing intramural volleyball, hanging out with friends, and exploring the trails around campus. I currently work as a teaching assistant and academic intern for the Department of Anthropology, as a student worker and blogger in the Office of Admission, as an office assistant for Alumni and Parent Programs, and as a note-taker for the Office of Student Affairs. In the past, I've also worked as a Campus Center Manager in Keefe Campus Center, as a Phonathon Caller for the Annual Fund, and as a Student Worker for the Office of Accessibility. I spent this past summer interning at a Jamaican governmental agency (which I'm sure you will hear all about in an upcoming blog post), and I have absolutely NO IDEA what I want to do with the rest of my life, so please don't ask! I'm taking senior year one day at a time and loving every second.
Well, that's a brief overview of me! Please feel free to email me at email@example.com with any questions or comments you may have! (Aka please email so that I don't feel like I'm spewing words out into an empty internet void!) I can't wait to hear from you, and here goes nothing!
