 Hi, my name is Katie and I’m a sophomore at Bryn Mawr. I’m an anthropology major with a biology minor, and have a particular interest in evolution and primatology. I’m excited for this class because I’m hoping it will incorporate both the cultural and biological aspects of anthropology by bringing to light how culture impacts evolution. The writing and the sharing of our ideas is a huge part of our culture, and the evolution of our culture has been crucial to the evolution of our species on a genetic level. As a result, our evolution is not only caused by how the environment changes us, but how we change our environment.         

     Outside of academics, I mentor at the Belmont Charter School in Philadelphia once a week. It is a breath of fresh air to be able to get off campus and spend time being a kid again. I am also treasurer and co-founder of the Ping Pong Club, which is new to Bryn Mawr this year! Anyone is welcome to join, we’d love more people! I also work in Haffner’s lovely dish room. If you hear someone singing (quite badly) from behind the accumulator, that is probably me :). Dancing also happens occasionally, but it’s a little tricky on the slippery floor. 

     I’m excited to get to know everyone!
