I'm currently the Co-chair for the Social Justice Committee, and Senator for the Goucher Student Government, a member of the Goucher Women of Color Circle, and a member of the Reverends Rebels.

If I could have an unlimited supply of one thing, it would be bubbles! I would just blow some bubbles no matter the time, place, or weather!

I met one of my closest friends through the Rhoda M. Dorsey Scholarship Program here at Goucher.
