Why did you join USG?

I am returning to USG for my senior year to continue to manifest and commit to a positive change to our community. In times like these, unity, action, and responsiveness are what brings about a more connected student body and university. This connection is impossible without all the voices that often go unheard. I hope to champion these voices and stories—for the perspective of many may brighten the lives of all.

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

I have many plans in store; chiefly more events connecting our University with our neighboring communities, in the effect of panels, opportunities, and social events.

Where are you originally from?

Chicago Born, Pasadena Raised, Florida Living!

If you really knew me, you’d know that…

I have four sisters!

My favorite place on Fordham’s Rose Hill campus is…

the library!

What is your favorite quote?

Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot life without and know we cannot life within.— James Baldwin
