Fun Facts

When I was a little kid some of my artwork was used in a movie as part of a kid's bedroom. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, traveling, reading, and I'm trying to become a better baker.

Best advice for students exploring majors

Exploring majors is a great time to be curious and connect with yourself. It's an opportunity to reflect on your values, how you like to spend your time as a student, and the kinds of problems you are interested in learning about and addressing. You can apply the new things you learn and the things you already know about yourself to find a major that is the right fit. Also, you are not alone- there are people to help you in your journey.
