What is your favorite quote? "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee." - Muhammad Ali

What advice would you give to new scholars? (Or advice you wish you had been told when you were a freshman):  To be honest, put yourself out there and be open to meeting new people. It's college, so homesickness is real (lasted days for me... jk weeks). But because of the best friends I've made and the memories we've shared, I feel at home here in Gator Nation too!

What organizations or clubs are you involved in? Multicultural Association of Prehealth Students, ESOL Achievers

What is your favorite thing about UF and being a Gator? All the FREE stuff muahaha! I ended first year with like dozens of free t-shirts I got at events (GO, GO, GO) & definitely enjoy the perks like free bowling at the Reitz & free canoeing at Lake Wauberg!
