Hi everyone! My name is Jai Retter and I’m from a small seaside town in Fairfield County, Connecticut. My zip code is a euphemism for a town full of popped collar boys and pearl wearing girls and after 17 years of desperately needing city life, I said goodbye to headbands on the beach and hello to down jackets in the city when I relocated to Montreal to attend McGill University. I’m now entering sophomore year double majoring in International Relations and English Literature with a minor in East Asian Studies. But don’t worry, my life isn’t all work and no play! In my spare time I like to ski race, go to concerts, party with friends, hang with my Kappa Kappa Gamma sisters (shoutout!), shop, travel, and write. I also love watermelon, the color white (is that even a color?), thunderstorms, fresh lavender, holidays, and Zumba. The only thing better than a day on the slopes or seeing my favorite band live is spending time with my family! I’m so excited to be writing for Dormify and I look forward to sharing my thoughts with all of you! Have a great school year!
