Academic Cap Education
University of Southern California

I am a fourth-year student at the University of Southern California. I am a dual-degree student seeking a bachelor's in health and human sciences and a master's in public health. Professionally, I work to support first-generation, transfer, former foster youth, and undocumented student populations at USC.

I am also working to support first-generation, low-income high school students along their journeys as future health professionals and in their transitions to college. In my free time, I enjoy playing basketball, cheering on the Dodgers, and being an active member of Angel City FC Pandemonium Supporters Group. I also have creative pursuits in cooking, photography, and electric and acoustic guitar.
