What I Love about Writing

I use writing as a tool for advocacy. Writing is often used as an essential tool for promoting good and solving problems. Writing enables you to contribute to those kinds of conversation, which is invaluable.

How I Stay Involved

I have the privilege of being involved in many groups at Ursinus: I’m a fellow for the Center for Science and the Common Good, I’m apart of Scholars and Service, I do research in Dr. Round’s lab, and I work in the library! Being involved in multiple areas on this campus has really shaped my Ursinus experience, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Life After Ursinus

After Ursinus I plan to get my Medical Degree and possibly a master’s in Public Health. I plan to spend a majority of my career working to resolve health disparities and inequalities in access to healthcare.
