My name is Nina and I am a sophomore at the lovely Bennington College! I study education and visual art, and am especially investigating what uniquely stems from an arts based education. To feed my inquiry I have been taking dance classes, drawing classes, ceramics classes, education classes, writing classes… the list goes on.
When I am not thinking about my academic Plan, I love being outside. Hiking, backpacking, and camping are some of my favorites. Reading books just for me is also great. Right now I am finishing up ”The Omnivore’s Dilemma”, a book about the U.S. food industry written by Bennington grad Michael Pollan. I recommend it, although its a pretty heavy read! On a related note, I have tons of fun cooking! I am really happy to be at a school with multiple kitchens per house so that I have the option to cook or bake whenever I’d like. Bannana bread is the best. I also love arts and crafts projects. They seem to have never gotten old for me… I still have just as much fun with them as I did ten years ago!
