About Me:

Growing up I was constantly reminded about the importance of receiving an education and how it would change my life for the better. Being a first-generation college student and woman of color at this institution, I am consistantly reminded of the importance of attaining a higher education. I know that many of my peers also face various obstacles in their academic careers and personal lives, which is why I am excited to be working this year with Oakes as a peer adviser. I hope to serve as a stepping stone and provide personal support to my peers so that they may reach their own goals. Whenever I am not at school or work I enjoy spending time outdoors hiking, capturing beautiful pictures, and good company.
