My Greatest Supporters

My greatest supporters during this recent academic journey have been: Mark Baird, for initially bringing me into the LEAP Program. Andrew Person & Stephanie Miller, for their encouragement and ongoing assistance during these past two years. Christian De Matteo & Erin Sweeny for opening my mind and spirit to new worlds I now cannot live without. Family & friends for taking interest in my passions.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

I recall the first moment I was on the campus in person; I was captivated by its beauty, the people met were kind and intriguing, and I felt so excited for the journey about to be embarked upon. Specifically with the LEAP Program, I feel so fortunate to have been placed under the wings of brilliant professors. Too many favorite moments from each course to list!

My Next Chapter

I plan to continue learning, exploring the world of literature, taking some chances, and possibly getting a masters degree. I hope to apply all I've learned during this journey to my future experiences. If can manage to do that, there will be many interesting chapters following this next one.
