Sustainability at Tufts | Mon Oct 29, 2018
Michaela is a junior transfer student to the combined degree program, endeavoring to split her time between the Medford and SMFA campuses as she gets to know her new school. Prior to moving to Boston, Michaela studied apparel design for two years at the University of Minnesota before taking a break from her formal undergraduate studies and booking a one-way ticket to Buenos Aires. After 7 months of language learning and travel between Argentina and Chile, she found herself back in the US, applying to pursue her interests in art and design, Spanish language and culture, and sustainability studies, all rolled up into one program at Tufts. Despite not having much free time, Michaela does her best to make it out to farmers markets and support locally sourced food.
