I enjoy taking naps, eating ice cream, quotes and metaphors, and DIY crafts, but most importantly I love to give back to the communities and spaces that have impacted my life. Aside from being FSA co-chair, I am one of the Alumni Engagement interns for UC Santa Cruz, I am a charter class member of new female fraternity on campus – Kappa Alpha Theta – and I am one of the co-founders and Executive Directors of the Happy Cart Project at UC Santa Cruz. Servant leadership is what I strive for as a leader and member within all my organizations.
