Aimée. Class of 2010. French language and literature major.
I believe that love does not have to be defined by gender.
Through hard work, sacrifice, and saving every penny I could, I have finally been able to pay my student loan in one fell swoop. I’m in a slightly scary place now, but I know I can pull myself up and over every hurdle.
I just returned from a year teaching young children in China, where I gained perspective on being an Other.
I am so proud of Smith and the way it has evolved, and I feel lucky to be part of it. I learned so much from my professors and the beautiful people who make Smith what it is. I learned that we never stop learning.
Should anyone bemoan the diversity in Smith’s community: I recommend that person, Smith alum or otherwise, turn on their brain, and open their mind: WAKE UP. You should be proud of what we have become and what we have the power to accomplish.
