What was your most meaningful service experience or extracurricular activity in college and why?

The summer following my junior year I interned at an NGO called World Pediatric Project. WPP works to help expand healthcare capacities in partner countries from the Caribbean and South America and also brings sick children to the United States to receive lifesaving surgery and treatment. Over that summer, I was able to assist 8 children and their families brought to Richmond during their treatment. I loved working with these kids, showing them around Richmond, and getting to learn more about their cultures from home. I was honored to be able to make a difference in these families’ lives and give them a chance at a better future.

What do you like to do for fun?

I love spending time with friends and doing exciting and adventurous things, especially if it’s outside and involves water. At the same time, I am unashamed of the ridiculously large number of shows I have binge watched on Netflix.
