Welcome to my official website filled with all of my adventures from Boston and Beyond!
Taking a Day off for Some Spring Fun!
It was 72 in Boston today and I decided to actually take a day off from both school and work, since I have been working/studying 7 days a week since January! I went to the Boston Public Gardens, Kendall Square, and Beacon Hill to take some spring photos with my camera and new GoPro I got from my boyfriend for Christmas.
Featured Writing from my First Semester Courses at The Fletcher School of Tufts University!
Through my Political Economies of Development course, we explored “rethinking” economic and societal development in Nigeria, the most populous country in Africa. Nigeria is an oil rich nation that has undergone decades of tumultuous internal conflict. As a group, we proposed three alternatives to develop and strengthen the economy away from oil dependency. As an accountant, I naturally took the section on taxation.

One fun fact to get ya interested: over 80% of individuals in Nigeria pay no taxes (gasp!)
Another Weekend of Outdoor Fall Fun Part 2:
Last weekend I spent 2 days exploring Harold Parker State Forrest in North Andover, MA with Jimmy and my mom! It is such a huge state forrest with a ton of different parking lots and trails with different sights and pathways. Jimmy and I did the Friends trail and it took us through a ton of small ponds with beautiful views.

Boston on a Sunny Saturday:
Below is my favorite photo I was able to snap on an empty street in Beacon Hill. Normally, Acorn Street is packed with tourists and “instagram models” on sunny spring afternoons. Today, it was absolutely empty and it was absolutely amazing. I’ve always wanted to just take some dang pictures of it without a ton of people in the background- today I got my wish. Check out more pictures of my Beacon Hill adventure here!
Well, it’s taken a global pandemic to encourage me to actually write a new blog post. Today’s topic- the Italian health care system and my personal experience!
