What are your goals in the future?

I want to continue my education after Alvernia to get my Masters Degree and eventually start my own business!

How will O’Pake help you reach these goals?

The O’Pake Insititue will help me reach this goal by providing mewith different opportunities that will allow me to network, deepenmy knowledge and skills, while simultaneously allowing me tomake more connections with fellow classmates.

What is your favorite memory at Alvernia?

My favorite Alvernia memory so far is meeting so many new people and developing friendships that Iknow will last a lifetime, that is the best part of college!

What made you decide to study at Alvernia?

A lot of schools that I looked at did not offer Digital Media Marketing as a major which was a big part of my decision, but when I visited campus for the first time I knew I would thrive there. I loved the smaller school aspect (I did not want to just be a number to my professors!) and the academic programs were exactly what I was looking for in a school.

Who or what inspires you and why?

My mom is my inspiration. She is the strongest, most caring, andselfless person that I know. She is my best friend and biggest supporter.

What is a quote that you abide by?

“Turn your wounds into wisdom”

– Oprah Winfrey


What is something that someone would be surprised to learn about you?

I couldn’t talk for an entire year! I had to get vocal surgery at the age of 15
