Every week, The Thrill features a member of a student-support organization to bring awareness about the various resources available to the student body on campus. This week, we’re featuring Tamsin McDonagh ’15 from Baltimore, MD. Stay safe this weekend, and know that there is always someone you can talk to if you need help.

Cookie pie or giant cookie?

Giant cookie!!! So gooey and delicious.

What’s the best meal you’ve ever had?

My mom’s Christmas breakfast. She makes this addictive bacon with cayenne pepper and brown sugar on it.

What’s the last good book you read?

The Snowman by Jo Nesbo. It’s a thriller about a villain that builds snowmen as a sign that he was at someone’s house. I got really into it. I was walking down to Tafts with my friend and screamed when I saw that someone had built a snowman outside of my home.

Why do you love your hometown?

I really just love being around my grandparents and getting to see my cats.

What’s your favorite place to nap on campus?

My bed when it is raining outside.

What movie have you watched most frequently? 

Almost Famous. My best friend and I watched it like twice a month last year. I really wish that I had found it in Middle school when I was a classic rock nerd.

Why did you become an SMA?

A lot of my friends had experiences of sexual misconduct in high school and as a supporter I often felt  powerless to help them. Sexual misconduct was something that happened a lot but none of us talked about it. I wanted to join SMAs to empower survivors and to be a part of the dialogue about sexual misconduct.
