Meet our November General Member of the Month, Vandita Patel!

Name: Vandita Patel

Major or interests: Communications and Media Studies

Astrological sign: Libra

Why she joined Her Campus at Emmanuel: Originally, I joined HerCampus because of my roommate. However, I continued coming to the general meetings because I loved how warm and welcoming everyone was. All of the executive board members and general members are so supportive, even if they don’t know you that well. I also joined HerCampus as a way to push myself out of my comfort zone. I never thought of myself as a writer and didn’t think I would gain anything out of it. However, I ended up writing two articles and it has helped better my writing skills.

What she likes writing about: I like writing about things that allow me to be more personal and connect with other people.

What she likes to do in her free time: I love knitting and anything that has to do with arts and crafts. I also like to bake, hang out with friends and explore Boston as much as I can

Fun fact: I’ve lived in four different countries

Favorite thing to do in Boston: I love going to Faneuil Hall and the Boston Harbor and just walking around that area.
