Photo Story: Chinese New Year in Boston

This annual event included traditional lions dancing and performances from different Asian cultural clubs. The streets were cleared in order for visitors to observe the cultural village and explore the shops and markets.

Kara Korab

Kara Korab (CAS '14) is a photographer and sometimes writer that hails from Silver Spring, Maryland but if you ask her she will probably just tell you DC because let's be honest you're not really sure where Maryland is. On a typical evening you can find Kara at some live music venue blowing up instagram and getting 'way too into it.' Kara is studying International Relations and History and studied abroad in both Paris and DC and probably talks way to much about it.
