Email Address:

Memory from CA experience: One of the most memorable moments from my CA experience as a first-year was playing different games with my CA group. It was so fun to get to know people that had had such different experience from me, yet still finding that we had a lot in common.

Reason for being a CA Fellow: I wanted to be a CA fellow because I wanted incoming students to have the same great experience I had on CA. I was very nervous to come on campus because I did not know anyone, and CA was a great place for me to make friends and get more comfortable with Princeton.

Favorite spot on campus: My favorite place on campus is Poe Field when it is warm and sunny outside because I love to hang out there and soak up the sun during the spring to take a break from classes and schoolwork.

Fun Fact: I have been a springboard and platform diver since I was six years old.
