Firsts in America – Sara Golakova ’26

I was asked to write a blog post for the OIS. As a proud OIS intern, I could not refuse. However, I’m at that point of the Vassar journey where I am severely burnt out, homesick, drowning in academic papers, documents & paperwork, and so on. No matter how much I sleep I cannot get enough rest. This is normal and I can’t do much about it except endure. In other words, I can’t write an extensive blog post — but I can offer you a glimpse into my notes. 
This note is called Firsts in America.
