What is your favorite quote? The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the sky. - Jack Kerouac

What advice would you give to new scholars? (Or advice you wish you had been told when you were a freshman):  Honestly, do not think too much about University. It is like you usually do but instead more responsibilities, and all under your control to determine your experience!

What organizations or clubs are you involved in? UF PASS, Undergraduate Philosophy Society, MFOS Peer Mentor, HSA

What is your favorite thing about UF and being a Gator? My most rewarding experience is meeting wonderful people that makes it all worth it!! I personally cannot denote myself as a "Gator." I prefer being myself and nothing more and nothing less!
