Some of the cool things I do on campus are:

I do a lot of things on campus from working with The Philosophy Club to working out with Queens Strength. Out of all the activities I participate in I focus the most on The First Generation Organization. The purpose of this organization is to aid first generation college students, and their allies, in their transition to Ithaca College. My job as president of first gen is to help first generation college students get connected to resources on campus. I also conduct panels and workshops throughout the academic year!

I am a New York State Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) student in The Office of State Grants. This program helps me gain professional development opportunities and offers me many types of support services. I am truly proud to be apart of a program the empowers historically underrepresented groups who are pursing professional licensure and careers in math, science, and health related STEM fields.

I have two jobs on campus. I work in the Office of Admissions as a President's Host and as an Admitted Student Ambassador.  I really enjoy both of my jobs because I have the chance to interact with perspective students and tell them my experience so far at Ithaca College. I also get to inform them about all the opportunities that IC can offer them!

Besides being a first generation college student I am a pizza lover, art enthusiast, and lover of all things green (like my cactus). If you wanna talk about how NYC has the best pizza or about sociological perspectives say hi!
