What do you plan to study?

English and Theatre Arts! I may also double-minor in Musical Theatre and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.

Why did you want to be a Hearst Fellow?

As someone who's extremely driven, I've pushed myself to take advantage of all the opportunities Furman has to offer. Hearst Fellows seemed like a perfect avenue to connect with students from a variety of diverse backgrounds, and I look forward to the additional mentorship and experiences throughout the program.

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

I was admitted to Furman before COVID-19, but I chose to defer my enrollment for a year. Now that I'm finally a freshman on campus, I'm delighted to have a beautiful environment and supportive friends and faculty--everyone at Furman is astonishingly welcoming!

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love to read, crochet, and sing. I'm learning to knit, and I'd like to begin designing and making my own clothes!

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

When I was younger, I read the entire Harry Potter series at least seven times--one of those reading sessions happened in the span of two days!
