I’m going to be a Head Community Advisor for Rosenthal Quad, I work in Admissions as the Marketing Assistant, and I’m part of SSSP (Student Support Services Program). I’m currently abroad in Tokyo, Japan! I plan on pursuing a graduate program in Higher Education, Student Affairs. My dream job, however, would be personal stylist to Barack and Michelle Obama. I recently got into kickboxing, and I love repurposing vinyl record covers as posters or canvases for painting.

Fun Fact: I've written a paper arguing for the integration of memes into literary canon as an interartistic form of writing. To this day, I'm still not sure why my professor allowed me to submit it for a grade!
