Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born in freezing Boston, and the second I graduated and could choose a new place to live and attend school, I chose USC in sunny Southern California without a second thought. Before I attended, I took a gap year to work as a volunteer kindergarten teacher. Since then, I've loved every minute pursuing my degree in Business Administration and International Relations and helping one of my professors as a research assistant.


Interesting Factoid

I can recite the 50 states in alphabetical order in less than 20 seconds.
