I am a rising junior majoring in Biology and HSSP with a minor in French. I am a runner for the Brandeis Track and Field team and love to lift as well. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with friends, watching Netflix, baking, and hiking. I have been speaking French for about eight years and love to learn about different francophone cultures. Post-graduation, I want to attend medical school and my dream job is to be an Emergency Room doctor and work in a French speaking country in Africa.

I am also the Social Media and Outreach Coordinator for the French Club at Brandeis. I just returned from studying abroad in the Spring of 2022 in Paris and had an amazing time.

I also enjoy painting and drawing. I am currently teaching myself to play the guitar. FUN FACT: I am a dual citizen of both the US and the UK.
