Why did you choose your major?
I’ve always been interested in the human mind and why we do the things we do, so Psychology was an easy choice. After taking a couple classes, I also developed a passion for the brain, so Neuroscience was the perfect addition to my major. I hope to eventually conduct research that would help find answers to psychological disorders that have an effect many lives such as depression.

What motivated you to apply to become a Student Leadership Consultant?
OSEMA is my second home. I spend a lot of time in the Student Activities Center already, and SLC was a position I’ve been attracted to since my first-year. I love how being an SLC gives you the chance to empower yourself and empower others, so it has been a very rewarding job for me.

If you could dedicate a full year to working for a social justice cause, what would that cause be?
I would strive to educate people about healthcare.
