Favorite Honors Course: My favorite honors course was HONR 150: Flourishing because it was really nice to learn about well-being and positive psychology principles. This class is definitely a nice break within a vigorous academic schedule and kept me sane throughout my beginning semesters of college. I like how the class addresses topics that are not addressed enough within academia.

Favorite Honors Memory: My favorite honors memory was doing a neighborhood visit with my cohort as part of a Humans of RVA assignment where we ate at a pasta restaurant in Richmond called Bombolini. The food was excellent, and I had a fun time with my cohort!
