My Greatest Supporters

First and foremost this wouldn’t be possible without the support of my family. I would also like to thank incredible professors like Denise Witzig, Kathryn Koo, Sunayani Bhattacharya, Claude-Rheal Malary, Lisa Manter and Jeannine King for being so supportive of me and so fundamental in my experience at SMC. I’ve learned so much from each of them and I’ll be forever grateful.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

My favorite memory would probably be taking Intro to Women’s of Gender Studies and doing our daily WWG sessions.

My Next Chapter

Over the course of the next year I plan to work as a teacher and obtain an emergency credential, and eventually begin applying to PhD programs for graduate school. I aspire to be a scholar and professor in media studies, hopefully publishing more work in the future on science fiction, horror films, superheroes, and The Muppets (among other things).
