Career GoalMy goal for the future is to attend medical school and become a pediatrician. I love working and interacting with kids, as I learned through volunteering in the pediatric unit at the hospital. The smiles I saw on the children, as they started feeling better, made me realize that this is what I want to do in the future.
I chose to become a peer mentor because...I became a peer mentor because I want to be able to support freshman navigating their way around college. The transition between high school and college is significantly different and having a person to ask questions helps. I want to help students gain memorable experiences and succeed. Just as I had a mentor and friend as a freshman, I want to do the same for others.
Campus InvolvementI am fortunate to have studied abroad in the spring term of my sophomore year and it was a very memorable experience. I am also heavily involved in Choir. I am in a choral choir, as well as a women's a cappella group. Finally, I am a part of a learning community called GWC (George Washington Carver). 
Students can ask me about...Studying abroad, volunteering, tutoring, choir and a cappella, and studying habits.
