What I Love about Writing

I love the autonomy writing gives me to voice my opinions and experiences! It’s powerful to put your thoughts out into the world in a cohesive and unique way.


History, Theatre


CWSS & Spanish

Most Memorable Moment in Class

When Dr. Argondezzi brought her kids’ toys in for us to discuss the early implementation of gender stereotypes societally. While the discussion was fascinating, my favorite part was all the laughter shared at the silliness and sound effects of the toys; it was a great pick me up after a long day.

How I Stay Involved

I am heavily involved in the theatre program at Ursinus! I’ve worked behind the scenes on several school productions in the costuming department, and am now branching out and helping with Breakaway Productions for the first time this spring semester!

Fun Fact

I know how to extensively sew, alter and create clothing! I learned at the end of 7th grade and have been doing it ever since. I mostly sew for costuming in the theatre program nowadays, but I still love making my own pieces from time to time!
