“The best part of teaching in public affairs is that, even if my research is ignored, I can make a difference by helping to educate the people who will be making decisions down the road. That’s both an extraordinary opportunity and a sobering responsibility, because what I say in the classroom might matter more than anything I ever write.”
In January I escaped from the extreme cold of Boston to go to Culebra, a small island off the coast of Puerto Rico. It was a wonderful getaway to enjoy with my family and boyfriend, Nick. When it comes to vacation, I’ve never been one to have trouble relaxing and I actually read 3 books – ah joy! I decided to leave my camera behind most days, but I (naturally) did document some of the trip. Most of these are photos of my family and Nick and various beautiful sights. Hope you enjoy!
