This week’s Campus Celeb is Danica Richards. While I’m abroad next fall, she’ll be taking over as the Amherst Campus Correspondent for Her Campus. Danica is a rising junior from Atlanta, Georgia. She is an English and Environmental Studies major. She is also the Vice President of Program Board. When she is sixty, she wants to be a philanthropist, focusing on education. She likes chocolate, but is allergic to it. She also loves puppies.
Danica is excited to head Her Campus next semester, because “it will give me a chance to work on my writing and editing skills.” Next spring she will be going abroad to either London or Brazil, where she will be blogging for us about her adventures. Her favorite thing about Amherst is the classroom experience. “This is going to sound cliché, but my professors have definitely taught me some lessons that extend beyond the classroom: hard work, patience, empathy, viewing the world with a critical eye instead of just accepting what people tell you.”
Danica has lots of awesome ideas for Her Campus Amherst next fall. Get excited!
