Why did you join USG?

I decided to join USG because I believe that every student has a voice. A lot of times, many ideas or needs of the student population are swept and kept under the rug (here at Fordham). Through my careful consideration and willpower to “set the world ablaze,” I, as well as the freshman class, believe that I am capable and willing to dedicate my full focus and willpower to the needs of my fellow classmates.

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

I plan to expand access and accommodations for deaf and blind students and faculty, increase awareness about the resources offered by the ODS, expand resources and opportunities for commuter and international students, further the integration of ODS into the DEI department, and also further the relation of the 2026 class senate and their classmates so as to a lot every student their voice in the changes of their campus…

What is your hometown?

Springfield, Pennsylvania

What is your favorite thing about Fordham?

My favorite thing about Fordham would have to be the community. I cannot imagine going anywhere else for college to receive the same community I have here at Fordham.

What has been your favorite class at Fordham so far?

My favorite class so far would have to be Honors Art History with Professor Nina Rowe. This was an amazing class with a structured and detailed curriculum that displays the true beauty as well as the analytical comprehensive tactics for analyzing a piece of art.
