“There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance next time.” - Malcolm X

Activities

I love to explore by hiking, trying new foods, meeting new people, and traveling. I like watching Marvel movies and a show called New Amsterdam. I also like learning more about hidden history and social injustices.

Research

I study the cellular effects of alcohol consumption during pregnancy in mice.

How I Stay Involved

I’m a Resident Advisor and enjoy spending time with residents during our “Waffle Wednesdays” or events planned through the Student Activities Office. I am also a part of Favero Lab, studying the effects of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders in mice.

Life After Ursinus

After Ursinus, I want to tackle inequalities like access to food & healthcare seen in many communities. I’d like to do this by working in the healthcare field and/or advocating for programs that improve accessibility overall.
