What has been your most impactful class?

My most impactful class has been my freshman seminar, REL 190: Memoirs of the Holocaust. Taught by the incredible Dr. Deborah Lipstadt, the course completely changed my approach towards confronting "ugly" history - that can so often be diminished or avoided. It was an incredible opportunity and introduction into Emory's renowned academic programs!!

On a random day, you're most likely to find me….

For starters, drinking lots of coffee!! I'm also always attempting to find the best study spot on campus and frequently try out new spots depending on what I'm working on! And if the weather's nice (which it often is), sitting outside somewhere!!

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

Try out new restaurants!! I like to say I am an aspiring foodie and Atlanta has such amazing food!! Some personal favorites are Iberian Pig and Flying Biscuit!

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

My favorite tradition is Songfest. This is an Emory tradition in which first-years compete amongst different residence halls. I missed out on it as a freshman, but I was able to lead it as a sophomore advisor. It's so much fun and such a unique, amazing time for bonding and school spirit!
