Rhea Jain

I am a junior majoring in public policy and global health, and I enjoy learning about history! What I want to do in the future changes on a daily basis but I mostly want to continue to find new places to explore, read, spend time with good people and listen to good music.

L's Taken

"Thank you for applying but..."


Things I thought I'd finish but never did

  • Many other crafting projects

  • Skimming the readings for class right before the quiz 

  • Cooking anything
