Her Campus: What attracted you to Brandeis?

Courtney Garvey: I love that there isn’t exactly a stereotypical Brandeisian. We have students from all sorts of backgrounds and with all sorts of interests, and together, this creates a really inspiring and powerful group of people.

CG: I am involved with the Student Committee for the Rose Art Museum (SCRAM), Amnesty International, Adagio, and (of course!) Her Campus.

HC: What advice do you have for incoming first years?

CG: Try everything and take risks. Keep your mind open to new experiences, even if they seem unfamiliar or scary, because what you find might surprise you.

HC: Where do you see yourself in ten years?

CG: Can I get back to you in nine years…?

Quick Facts:

Secret Talent: I’m a pretty good chef/baker. One of the toughest parts of being away from home has to be not having easy access to a kitchen.

Favorite Spot on Campus: The Rose Art Museum

Favorite Song of the Moment: Ophelia - The Lumineers

Favorite Boston Attraction: The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

Favorite Class at Brandeis: It’s a tie between History of Fashion in Europe and Early Modern European History  (If you haven’t noticed yet, I’m a fan of history).

Prized Possession: A notebook I keep with my favorite poems and passages from books.

Mya is a sophomore at Brandeis University. She is an Education major with minors in African and Afro-American Studies and Anthropology. When she’s not writing, you can find Mya playing for the Brandeis women’s soccer team or attempting to navigate Boston. She also enjoys dancing and is a firm believer that what she lacks in technique she can make up in enthusiasm. She’s originally from sunny South Florida and can frequently be seen sporting her winter coat indoors. Follow her on Instagram @myagoodman for sporadic postings of her life!
