Favorite thing to do in Birmingham?
I love studying at and trying new coffee shops!! I have an entire bucket list of coffee shops in the bham area, and I try to go to a new one every couple of weeks to study at, alone or with friends!
Favorite UAB memory?
My second week at UAB, I turned 18 in a city I had just moved to, with almost no friends. My plans for the day had been cancelled, and I was feeling extremely homesick. I got a text from one of my friends I had connected with on Instagram before coming to UAB, inviting me just to come hang out in her dorm room. When I went into the room, the entire room was decorated, there was cake and pizza, and all of her roommates and suite-mates were there to throw me a mini-party. It was the first moment on campus I had felt 100% at-home at UAB, and knew I had made the absolute correct decision in committing.
Something I am looking forward to at UAB is...
Graduating knowing that I am the best possible prepared to move forward in the future, and get to see a future generation of Blazers take on their futures!

I’m interested in
Dance Marathon, Campus Cru, and interning for UAB Dining!
I’m passionate about
Fighting for those with invisible illnesses, spending time with family and friends, and advancing in my degree
