Meet Sabrina, the 'nerd' behind our analytics dashboard

Give us a little background information about yourself. Where are you from? Where do you go to school? Where are you spending your quarantine?

Hi everyone! My name is Sabrina. I am no longer a student at Wellesley College (saying this out loud still surprises me!), as I graduated this May with a major in Economics and a minor in Art History. I was born in Hong Kong but grew up in Shanghai. Right now, I’m spending my quarantine in lovely, balmy Hong Kong, being very thankful for the mild weather and the many hiking trails that lets me have fun and practice social distancing :)

How are you dealing with finishing school remotely?

It was definitely a shock. We all knew it was coming but being told to leave your home for the past four years in 5 days definitely took a little adjustment. I am so thankful for my professors who have gone out of their way to make sure that people can keep up with the syllabus despite everything that is going on. Due to the time difference, I’ve only been able to make one of my classes during its scheduled time, which means that I spend most of my day watching recordings of my lectures. I really appreciate how some of my professors amended our syllabus to include information on how COVID-19 impacts the world, moderated through the lens of the course. It’s definitely helped me and my classmate understand this unprecedented situation better.
