Major: Biology, Minor: Chemistry




Hometown: Sterling, VA

Favorite Honors Course: My favorite Honors course has been my Independent Study, where I have been working with Dr. Gahagan, the director of LEAD, to develop a new integrated course for both the Honors and LEAD LLPS, focused on reflection-based leadership development!

Favorite Honors Memory: My favorite Honors memory was the first time I toured Richmond with my Humans of RVA cohort as a freshman. I never realized what a vibrant place Richmond is before that experience. I loved exploring the food and city, and getting to know the people!
