Well folks, here it is. The last of the Tufflepuffs in the summer. We hope you enjoyed learning about some of our players! This week, we're focusing on our rising sophomores.
Today, we'll be kicking it off with Athena Mayor! This summer, Athena is traveling around a lot. She will be visiting Martha's Vineyard, the Bahamas (picture above with the piggies) and possibly Greece! Other than that, she's just hanging out being lazy-- the best way to spend the summer, let's be real.
Next, we have the oh so exciting Javier Licardie! He's spending his summer taking Organic Chemistry 1 AND 2 at Tufts. Good on you, buddy!
Now we have Kasey Tamamoto! This summer, Kasey is relaxing in her home state of Hawaii (not a bad place to relax). In addition to relaxing, she is also helping to save the world by volunteering at medical clinics and working a part-time job.
Our last rising sophomore, Sasha Raveendran Greene, snagged an awesome internship in Singapore! In addition to working, she is also watching a lot of Game of Thrones, an excellent past-time in my opinion. Hope you're having an awesome summer working in Singapore!
Last, but certainly not least, we have Ari Panzer who is a rising senior. He is placed in this grouping because he was the last person to fill out my Google form! Ari is spending his summer working at Tufts doing public health research and interning at Brigham Women's Hospital. Most of the week, he is filled to the brim with work. But on weekends, he is exploring Boston with friends, playing way too much spikeball (and I can attest to that), and enjoying the Tufts campus in the wonderful Boston heat. He is looking forward to his summer work winding down and relaxing until school starts.
This week we're going to focus on our rising juniors! We'll kick it off with Kenny Weitzman! This summer, Kenny is interning with Senator Shaheen. He has loved his summer job so far and cannot wait to see what the rest of the summer holds for him!
Next up is Devon Ramsey! Devon is spending his summer playing for the Boston Night Riders, taking classes at Tufts, and forcing kids to be literate. In a nice way, he's trying to teach kids how to read. He's also spending his summer hanging out with a lot of quid folks. Nerd.
Third is Mr. Jordan Kemp! This summer, Jordan is working under Professor Tobin in the Tufts physics department taking extremely artsy photos of the vacuum he works with (check out his Instagram @jordy_no.10). Besides doing research all day every day, Jordan is chilling out and enjoy the Boston summer heat.
Last for this week is meeeee, Adina Feinstein! This summer, I am working in the Tufts astrophysics department under the advisement of Professor Marchesini. My project involves using images from the Hubble Space Telescope! (And I won't bore you with the other details.) Other than research, I am spending a lot of time crocheting and taking weekend trips out of Boston with friends.
We're back for round THREEE! Aren't you curious as to what we are doing this summer? If you aren't, then you definitely should be because our players are doing some pretty cool stuff this summer! We'll kick it off with our rising seniors!
David Stack! This summer, David is doing summer scholars, a research program for undergraduates here at Tufts. He's working with Professor Lantagne on chlorination of water. He's spending his days in a lab measuring the residual chlorine effect of NaDCC and NaOCl (the two main types of chlorine used to treat contaminated drinking water) to determine which type of chlorine is better to use. He is also keeping for the Boston Night Riders, Boston's MLQ team, and playing spikeball any chance he gets.
Next up is Sir Nicolas Sempere! Nicolas is spending his summer in his hometown of Houston, Texas, working as a software developer for Exxon. He also came back to Boston for the Fourth of July to hang with us! At the end of the summer, Nick plans on taking one heck of a road trip to Peru with a friend. He also wants to sneak in another trip somewhere, so I'll keep you up to date on that!
Third today is our good buddy, Ian Luo! This summer Ian is staring blankly at computers for 8 hours a day at Trip Advisor and having daily existential crises about why he chose to major on computer science. Oy...
Saving the best for last, is my mentor McKenzie Welter! This summer, she is working as a data analyst at Deloitte at 30 Rock. She loves her job because she gets to see a giant picture of her bae's face every day: Jimmy Fallon! Other than working, McKenzie plans on visiting every free/ pay-what-you-want museum in Manhattan, breaking the world record for hours spent traveling between New York and Boston (WEEE!), and finding the best food truck that parks within a 2 block radius of Rockefeller Center. Good luck with all of those things, McKenzie!
