What advice would you give new first-gen students?

Be in communication with your loved ones! Having the support of people you love and love you will add so much ease to your transition, plus they will love to hear from you.

Student Organizations, Clubs, or Athletic Teams you are a part of:

I am a member and choreographer for Ithaca's largest and longest-running dance company IC Unbound and have been active in my floor community!

What would you love to find at a yard sale?

I would be thrilled to find a collection of old postcards, I recently found some from my Grandma and I think they're the coolest thing ever.

Do you have any hidden talents?

I am an excellent hula hooper

If you could have front row seats to any concert, who would you like to see? (can be dead or alive)

I love pretty much all live music. Live performance is one of the most magical things in the world, in my opinion.

Favorite Class you've taken at IC? (And why)

Native American and Indigenous Studies, the professor, Iokepa Salazar, is amazing. I learned so much and really enjoyed the readings and work we did.

Favorite Ithaca-area restaurant/coffee shop/food location

Pad Thai from Taste of Thai is my mine and my roommate's favorite!
