What was your first-ever job?

My first-ever job was working as a tutor. I really enjoyed tutoring and it helped me realize that education was something I was very passionate about.

What fictional world or place would you like to visit?

I’ve always been super fascinated with fantasy worlds. Anywhere with magic and mystical creatures has my vote!

What has been your favorite WOW event?

I joined IUPUI right in time to jump into all the great WOW events. I really enjoyed the Health and Wellness Fair. Students were very engaged and the energy was palpable. It was definitely a great start to my journey here at IUPUI.

Are you a morning or a night person?

Good question! I always joke that I’m a "middle-of-the-day" person. I don’t like waking up too early or staying up too late, but catch me in the middle of the day, and I’m good to go.
