Max Goldfarb is passionate about Spanish, travel, community service, and sports. During high school, Max participated in an educational exchange program between his school and the Instituto Abdón Cifuentes in Santiago, Chile, in which he hosted two Chilean students for one month each and traveled to Chile in the summer following his sophomore year. Max has traveled extensively, including visits to France, Spain, Russia, Israel, and Italy, and has greatly enjoyed learning about different cultures. He is deeply committed to community service, serving as a junior coach during high school for the New Jersey Dare Devils special ice hockey club and working as a counselor at Ramapo for Children, a summer camp for children with autism, learning disabilities, and special needs. Additionally, Max spent a week in Guatemala building a house for a rural family and started a high school club that helps send supplies to people in need in Central American nations. Finally, Max participated in varsity ice hockey, track and field, and tennis in high school, and enjoys following his favorite college and pro teams. As a result of attending the Wharton Sports Business Academy last summer, Max has developed a deep interest in business and hopes to apply the fundamental skills he learned at Wharton during his social entrepreneurship placement in Cuenca. At Tufts, he is interested in studying either International Business or International Relations, in addition to continuing his Spanish studies.
