I’m Bevy, and I’m a junior from Mclean, Virginia, otherwise known as outside DC! I’m studying Social Policy with a Certificate in Civic Engagement and a minor in (maybe) Critical Theory or (maybe) Sociology. On campus, I’m involved in the theater group TBD, work as a campus tour guide, and can be found either drinking too much coffee or hanging out on the lakefill.
