My Greatest Supporters

Throughout my time at Saint Mary’s, my greatest supporters were my parents, my sisters, and all of my friends. I could not have done it without their guidance, love, and support.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

It’s so hard to choose one! I am grateful for all the memories that I have made here at SMC, such as going to the basketball games, running into everyone in Dante quad, and studying abroad in Oxford, England for Jan Term. My greatest memory of all was spending time with my friends and roommates.

My Next Chapter

After graduation, I am looking forward to moving back to San Francisco, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and starting my career.
