Interests: Dance, pop culture, city life (living in the City of Brotherly Love and all of its glory), education, healthy living, travel, and the occasional light-hearted novel
About Me: If I had to choose three words to describe myself, they would be passionate, personable, and positive. I really like meeting new people and working with them.

Favorite Place on Campus: If I had to pick my favorite place on campus, it would have to be the Mansion. Ever so cozy and nice, it’s very fancy, but it doesn’t brag about it. I like to pretend that I’m on Downton Abbey while I’m there, just hanging out on my English estate in the countryside.
Fun Fact: I have lived in London and Paris, but Philadelphia will always have a special place in my heart!
