Hannah May

I am a junior at Wellesley College majoring in Media Arts and Sciences. This is an interdisciplinary major the combines the studio art department with the computer science department, focusing on the intersection between art and technology.

At Wellesley, I am heavily involved in athletics and residential life. I am going into my second year as the captain of the varsity swimming and diving team. After serving 1 year as a Residential Assistant (RA’s), I am going to serve as the House President for Beebe Hall in the 2020-2021 school year. This role means that I will be in charge of the staff of RA’s for this building. 

I am passionate about music, and act as a radio dj for WZLY, Wellesley College public radio. I host a one hour segment each week called “Tender, Toasted Tunes with Hannah”. I love to create, play music and spend time in nature or with my family when I have free time.
