Biography

Class Year: 2024

I am a second year at PLU with a goal to help and support marginalized groups on campus and in my future career. I am particularly passionate about addressing how systemic racism affects everyday interactions and relationships and how intersectionality is a helpful tool to understand individual identities. I am also committed to environmental activism in my local community and being a voice for BIPOC and low income communities that are the predominant targets of climate change. Additionally I love to play the violin, draw, take photos, and dance.

Favorite Residence Hall Memory: I was on RHC last year and we made an event where we reused plastic bottles as pots and planted herbs and flowers in them and then we painted designs on the bottles. It was a great combination of sustainability, creativity, and community!

Extracurricular Activities: I play violin in the USO and I am a Rieke Scholar
