Give us a little bit of background about yourself!

I’m currently a junior at Temple University majoring in public relations with a minor in digital media creation. I am currently involved with Temple’s PRSSA Chapter, as well as I am a founding sister of Tridelta. In my spare time I love to go eat at the world’s largest Wawa located here in the heart of Philadelphia, read, and try new foods with my friends.

Describe yourself in three words.

Hard-working, dependable, and outgoing

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

What’s something few people knew about you, but you wish they did?

I love to cook and bake but I am not good at it at all. I tend to get more burns on my hands and arms form the process then I am actually able to cook.

If you could give a piece of advice to your high school/younger self, what would it be?

I used to be a worry wart about everything and it caused me a lot of stress in high school even until my freshman year of college. Looking back on it now, I can’t even remember what I was worried about in the first place because everything ended up working out how it was supposed to.
