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 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 still figuring it out, but I want to be able to make my community and the world less economically disparate. I want to increase people’s standard of living and wellbeing while also working to make our economic systems more equitable.
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 ways to move my body and feed my soul at the same time.
Tell us something you are excited about! I am currently planning a study abroad trip to Puerto Rico! I am so excited to spend an extended amount of time working on my Spanish, my salsa skills, and immersing myself in the culture.
