What do you miss most about your hometown when you’re at UVA?
I miss my family the most, especially my mom.

Why are you passionate about your program at the Women’s Center?
I am passionate about YWLP because I love working with adolescent girls and I love being a mentor. It makes me so happy to know that I am helping to make a young girls life better just by spending time with her.

What made you choose UVA over other schools you applied to?
UVA was my dream school. I came to grounds for the first time when I was in the eight grade and I feel in love with grounds and that’s when I made the decision to come here.

What has surprised you about UVA?
I was surprised by how beautiful grounds looks during the spring when all of the trees and flowers start to bloom. It actually looks like something out of a magazine.

What’s a fun fact you’d like people to know about you?
One fun fact about me is that I have a quarter collection and I have a quarter for every state.

If you could have coffee with anyone from history, who would it be and why?
If I could have coffee with anyone from history it would be Simone de Beauvoir because she is my favorite feminist theorist.
