There is quite truly not much that makes a day brighter than watching your best friend smile. Today was the birthday of the first friend I made in college, the first person who really understood me here and continues to each and every day. There are some people that were put on this planet to spread love and joy and she is one of them: the embodiment of compassion. She is someone who so willingly gives second chances and encourages others to be their best selves. Tufts wouldn’t be Tufts without my best friend and future roommate so seeing her happy today was utterly priceless.
