What will you be doing at this year’s Weekend of Excellence?
I will be attending as a nominee for two awards: Outstanding GPA Student Leader Award and the GPA Student Social Justice in Action Award.
How has your time at Loyola helped shape you as a person?
The experiences I’ve had as a graduate student and a graduate assistant have shaped me to become a strong, empathetic, and resilient leader in higher education. Loyola has easily been one of the most loving and affirming environments I have ever been in, both academically and socially. Everyone here holds a special place in my heart.
What do you hope to be doing 10 years from now?
I hope to be a leader in the field of higher education. Visibility is important and I feel the need to be consistent and inspire other people in the field with similar identities as mine. I also hope to be in, or near, the city of Chicago. It exudes an energy that does not compare to any other city in the world.
