I am a passionate and optimistic young woman that seeks to explore the world and share my talents. I am a motivated individual that has always excelled in school, holding a 4.0 GPA in college. I am excited to learn as much as possible moving forward.

Bucket List  

Culinary School

I have recently developed a passion for cooking, especially over quarantine, and would love to go to culinary school to learn everything about food mastery. It would be especially special if I had the opportunity to do so abroad.


Travel the World

I want to see as much as I can in my lifetime and experience as many cultures as possible. I would love to do this alone or share these memories with someone that I love.
