"When I came to Georgetown 4 years ago, I thought I'd be pretty different. I grew up on an old orchard in Granville, MA (population 1,500). Half of my family lives in Shanghai while my other half is a large Italian family scattered around the United States. I have weird taste in music and a penchant for over-analyzing movies and books. While I was a kid, I spent more time outside in the woods with my dog than hanging with friends indoors. I like carpentry, working on cars, and other manual labor more than sitting in front of a computer. I'm a fairly weird person, overall.
But, I was wrong about being so different. Sure, there are some average, everyday people here (power to them). However, when I look to my friend who grew up in Tanzania, my friend who is a trivia-wiz, my friend who is a DJ, or my friend who has lived in over 5 different countries, I feel pretty normal too. When I first came to Georgetown, I had no idea it would be full of so many unique and interesting stories."
