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

My sister interned at the Women's Center at her University and told me of all the great things that Women's Centers are doing and accomplishing in their communities, and I knew that I wanted to get involved as soon as possible, and I am so glad that I did!

2. What is your favorite memory of UVA so far?

My favorite memories at UVA include piling up on the couch with all my roommates watching old Disney movies after a much-needed late-night trip to cookout!

3. Who is a woman that inspires you?

A woman that inspires me every day is my great grandmother Ruby. She is nearing her 103rd birthday but is still the life of the party with her bright pink hair and winning smile. She has the most steadfast heart of anyone I have ever known, and she cares so deeply for all those around her. I hope when I grow up, I can share my great grandmother's appetite for life and her unfailing perseverance.

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

I love to listen to music and work on my coloring book!

5. How does your work at the Women's Center motivate you?

My work at the Women's Center has been so important to me these past few semesters as it has allowed me to grow in my love and respect for myself and those around me. It has encouraged me to stand up for what I believe in and view life through an intersectional, social justice-oriented lens. I have learned so much and I am immensely grateful to have had the opportunity to surround myself with so many caring and passionate individuals. The Women's Center invites me to become a better version of myself.

6. What is a podcast/TV show/book, etc. that's grabbed your attention recently?

For better or for worse, you will definitely catch me listening to the latest episode of Crime Junkie on my walk to class. I have also been really diving into the book "Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men" and it is fascinating!
