What do you like to do for fun?

I enjoy spending time with family, going on hikes, binge-watching shows on Netflix/Hulu, traveling, and trying different kinds of food. 

Name and describe a memorable place you’ve been.

A memorable and special place I have been is Kenya, Africa. My parents were born and raised there so to be able to experience the culture of music, food, and traditions is heartwarming to me. 

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

During my senior year, I was able to do my field placement in Washington, D.C. at the National Center of Sexual Exploitation. It was my first time being away from so being in a new city. I was able to experience community engagement while defending human dignity and making a difference in the world.
