What I Like to Do on Weekends:

I like to sing on the weekends! I've been singing ever since I was a little kid. It's something that I have not only gotten better at over time, but feels freeing, especially since singing is very therapeutic for me.

My Favorite Class at Stetson:

Drugs, Mind, and Behavior with Dr. Camille Tessitore-King is my favorite! Not only am I biased towards this class because I am currently a Teacher's Assistant for that class, but I find it interesting how the chemicals within the human body are linked to behavior and mental well-being. I am also interested in neuropsychopharmacology for a career, so this class is right up my alley! 

Advice to Prospective Students:

Listen to your heart and your gut! There are lots of great schools out there, and it can be overwhelming to think about all the options you have for a university. So, make sure to visit the campuses and get a feel for each university you are interested in so that you can truly feel comfortable at the college where you decide to attend.

Favorite Place on Campus:

My room is my favorite place on campus. I'm a homebody, so naturally, my room makes me feel most comfortable. But also, I like interior design! Every year, I do a "room reveal" where I reveal on social media what my room looks like for the school year. My room gives me a space where I can partake in interior design and transform my dorm room into a portrait of sorts with my designs.
