How have you benefited from the Gannon Scholars program?

I have benefitted greatly from the program. I have met some of my best friends, roommates, and support systems from this group of phenomenal women. I have grown by learning from my peers about topics related to social justice that I never knew anything about before.

Why is the mission of women's leadership important to you?

It is through having this inspiring, helpful, and supportive group of women who want the best for you and who will support you through everything that I feel most comfortable to lead and have the confidence to lead.

What are you interested in researching? Why?

I am potentially interested in researching how society has sexualized women in the public sphere but how women are shamed for being sexual beings in the private sphere.
