What do you plan to study?

I plan on studying Neuroscience.

Why did you want to be a Hearst Fellow?

I wanted to join the Hearst Fellowship to take full advantage of all the opportunities that Furman offers, that I would otherwise be unaware of being a first-gen college student.

What has Furman meant to you during this period of change?

During this period of change, Furman has been my constant. With the whole world turning upside down, I know that my future is still being developed and for about through Furman.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my spare time, I love to explore the world of digital art (which I have only scraped the surface of) and watch movies.

What's a quirky fact about you, or what would the title of your autobiography be?

My autobiography would be called "Sing Along!" because I always have a song stuck in my head!


As of now, I am only involved in the First Generation Student Alliance and Hearst Fellow, but I definitely plan on joining more in the coming semesters!
