What is your proudest moment or accomplishment?

My proudest moment from my VISTA experience was helping to create a much needed Student Veteran Association for the over 300 student Veterans at Upstate.

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time, I love exploring and traveling to new places and have a hard time staying in one place too long. I’m excited to discover the “Magic City,” brave the Alabama heat, and take in all it has to offer.
