What I Love About Writing

I love how writing is a process that changes with time. You get the opportunity to improve your writing throughout your academic career. I know I have come a long way since high school! I also love how you get to express yourself with writing through your own style.

How I Stay Involved

I stay involved with the Ursinus community by being a part of various groups such as STAT (Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow), MSA (Muslim Student Association), and UC Ambassadors. Even though I am a commuter, I always try to come to campus as much as I can outside of class time. Whenever I hear about an event happening on campus, I always try and go to those events as well.

Life After Ursinus

I plan on pursuing a career in Actuarial Science after Ursinus. I am going to take a year or two year gap and focus on getting a job at a company. While working, I will be taking the Actuarial exams which are required in order to become an Actuary. From there, I will see how I feel about going for my Masters or PhD in Mathematics.

An Unusual Fact About Me

I am very short :) (4 feet and 8 1/2 inches to be exact!)
