What impact do you want to have on the world?

Something that matters. Something that makes a positive difference for people and the environment since both are so closely woven together. 


Name a person you admire.

President Barack Obama

What is something you are proud of in your life so far?

Making it into Swarthmore and keeping an optimistic view about the world. 

What have been the most valuable Evans Scholars program experiences for you?

 The family that comes from being a part of the Evans program is unbelievable. It's one thing to learn from your own journey, but to gain knowledge and insight into everyone else's ideas is perhaps the most inspiring aspect of the program.  

What was the most transformative class you have taken and/or what subjects do you want to explore deeply?

I was involved in the President's Sustainability Research Fellowship and that was most definitely my most transformative class. I was able to learn how the college works as an institution when it comes to programming and I was also able to learn from students, faculty members, and people from the Swarthmore borough about what the Crum Woods means to them and how they would like to see interactions with the space improve.
