About Peaches

Most beautiful/awe-inspiring thing I've seen: Human made: Sistine Chapel at the Vatican; nature made: largest bamboo forest in Japan. There is absolutely no way to describe the pure awesomeness of being able to stand within such serene and powerful settings.

If I was able to live anywhere else, it would be: In an apartment looking over the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, Italy.

Favorite dessert: Crumbs bakery's Twinkie cupcake—it's absolutely pure decadence in cake form!

Guilty pleasure tv show:
SyFy's Being Human

Biggest misconception of a women's college: A women's college education is not a "real" education. To be in a learning environment aimed at making a positive impact in the world is a real education. We're just doing it with 1,300 of our closest friends!

Why do you enjoy working at Bryn Mawr? Bryn Mawr is my home. It's where I found my voice and a place where I truly learned that anything is possible.
