"Hello! My name is Raluca, and I am a biology major and neuroscience and French minor from Roseburg, Oregon. I am having a great time here in Portland trying out different classes, exploring the beautiful city, and sampling all the food I can. In my free time I love playing volleyball, rock climbing, hanging out with friends, going out to eat, and re-reading Harry Potter with some tea. I am open, friendly, and honest, so visit me in the Writing Center."
