What do you plan to study?

I plan to study possibly Biology or Sociology on the Pre-Health Track.

Why did you want to be a Hearst Fellow?

I wanted to be a Hearst Fellow since I was a First-Generation College Student who wanted to pursue a big dream. I was worried that being First Generation, I would miss out on steps necessary to be able to reach this dream, but Hearst Fellows came across as a space where you were educated on what resources are on campus so students aren't missing out, as well as offered a community that will last our college experience. Being 12 hours away from home, having a mentor along with a community seemed like it would really help me adapt. They have so many resources and opportunities that I am so excited for, especially internships and research!

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

Furman has been the breath of fresh air that I needed to truly be able to step out of my comfort zone, be challenged and begin to learn more about myself. Also, the sense of community here has taught me many things about older relationships and newer relationships that I continue to grow.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my free time, I like to listen to music, do my own makeup + nails, watch movies, go to the PAC and spend time with my friends.

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

One quirky fact about me is that me and Danny Devito are the same height and were born in the same hospital in the same town in New Jersey.
