  • I have hiked Mt. San Antonio (aka Mt. Baldy) in Los Angeles, the highest point in LA. 
  • I grew up watching the Lakers and I am a Lakers fan to this day, but have never seen a Lakers game in person at the Staples Center. 
  • The first concert I attended was Britney Spears during her "Oops!...I Did It Again" Tour at the Forum in Los Angeles. 10-year-old me loved it!
  • Some things on my bucket list: see the Aurora Borealis, fly in a hot air balloon, visit Monet's home/garden in Giverny, France.

LET'S TALK ABOUT: the latest movie in theaters and your goals while at USF

I LIKE: dark chocolate and milk tea boba 

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT USF IS: Its values of diversity and inclusivity and the amazing views of San Francisco at Lone Mountain!
