1.    What brought you to the Women’s Center?

Wanting to work with our local Charlottesville community and be able to give back.

2.    How has a mentor impacted you?

I’ve made such amazing friends who are strong and powerful. They have taught me to be strong like they are, even when I don’t feel like I can be.

3.    Who is a woman that inspires you?

Dr. Jill Biden. She will continue working while being a first lady and it speaks to her dedication to her students.

4.    How are you making a difference at the Women’s Center?

I have a great relationship with my little sister. I believe we have worked through a lot of daily middle school struggles and we have honestly both helped each other. We have deep conversations that are meaningful and I can tell she’s grown so much since I met her!

5.    What is something you and your little have bonded over?

We have bonded over our relationships with family members — we both come from tight-knit families and it’s one of the reasons we were able to get so close at first.

6.    What is one thing you do after a stressful day?

Read or watch tv with my dog
