Major: Biology, Psychology, Minor: Chemistry




Hometown: Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil

Favorite Honors Course: My favorite Honors course was "Social, Economic Changes in American Cities and Suburbs," taught by John Palen, because as part of the class we learned about Richmond and walked around the city recognizing buildings and contextualizing their existence in history. I also loved Political Science with Saladino because I learned about political international economy without even noticing.

Favorite Honors Memory: My best honors memory was getting to meet one of my favorite people because of an honors class. We got together to do a group project and have been great friends since (shout out to my fave Liz Kazarian, now a med student at MCV).

Student Organizations: Omicron Delta Kappa (National Leadership Honor Society, President from 2016-218)
