What is your favorite quote? “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” Eleanor Roosevelt

What advice would you give to new scholars? (Or advice you wish you had been told when you were a freshman):  Take advntae of all of the opportunities. Make new friends and visit new places. Talk to upperclassmen and learn from them. The key is building a support system, finding your niche, and finding yourself as you create yourself.

What organizations or clubs are you involved in? AED Pre-Health Honor Society, SSF, IFUS

What is your favorite thing about UF and being a Gator? I love the striking spirit and the lively atmosphere. You are welcomed into a family of gators that range from every corner of the nation. I love the drive and determination that we all share and the support that we offer to each other.
