Sociology, Psychology, & Global Health, Class of 2023
"I think that having conversations, sharing experiences, and building relationships with people are key to overcoming any kind of obstacle. However, I know that academic struggles bring with them a special kind of pressure, especially as a student at this university. I want to work with other students so they have a space to share their challenges, identify strategies, and develop skills that will allow them to have a fruitful educational experience. "
What I wish I'd known as a first year: I wish I had known two things: 1) self-advocacy is one of the most valuable skills a person can develop and 2) building relationships with other members of the institution is critical to success, whether it be academic, professional, or personal.
Fun fact: I studied abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark in Fall 2021!
Favorite place to study: In the Mac lab at Main, or outside, wherever there's a view of the lake.
Best advice I've ever received: We live in the grey areas of life.
