What drew you to the Zenie Foundation? The emphasis on community really resonated with me, especially coming from a small high school (about 400 students). I thrive when I am able to make meaningful connections with academic and professional advisors, and that’s exactly what the Zenie Foundation provides for me. What is something you love about your school? I love the small size and diverse and international community at Clark. I feel like I’ve been able to make connections with so many different people from different parts of the country and world. What are some of your career aspirations? I’m not sure of the specifics yet, but I envision myself working to make my community and the world less economically disparate. I want to make our systems more equitable to help increase economic opportunity and general well-being for everyone.
What hobbies/extracurriculars do you have? I am a part of the women’s volleyball team, and also the salsa team at Clark! I can’t say enough about how much I love this mixture of athletics and arts; I feel so lucky to have found a way to move my body and feed my soul at the same time.
Tell us something you are excited about! I was recently accepted to Clark’s fifth year master’s program! I'll be studying to get my degree in Community Development & Planning with an emphasis on economic justice and urban resilience.
What is a saying you live by? “Unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.”
