What are some of your interests and involvement outside the Gannon Scholars program?
Outside of the Gannon Scholars program, I am not only involved in Loyola student organizations such as the Pre-Dental Association and Students Organize for Syria, but also commit myself to helping the Chicago community. I have been able to do so through three of my passions: dentistry, volunteerism, and journalism. I am a journalist for The Gazette Chicago, work as a dental assistant, and volunteer throughout the community.
How have you benefited from the Gannon Scholars program?
The Gannon Scholars program is beneficial due to the people within it. Although I am a scholar myself, my growth and development is largely due to the people around me. As someone who is passionate about social justice and women's rights, Gannon became a prime platform for me to express my ideas. Perhaps the most unparalleled experience in Gannon is the opportunity to hear other viewpoints from a diverse group of women. By the end of my time at Loyola, I can truly say that the diversity in Gannon will make me a more well-rounded individual ready to tackle the professional world.
