About Me
While at Rensselaer, I have been involved with a variety of extracurricular activities on campus, all while managing to keep academics as my first priority.

I joined Alpha Omega Epsilon as a first semester sophomore, where I have served as Scholastic Chair and Philanthropy Chair. During those terms I hosted our chapter’s first faculty event and increased our involvement with FIRST, our sorority’s national philanthropy. I make an effort to volunteer for STEM outreach events whenever I see the chance.

I became a resident assistant in a freshman hall mid-semester in Fall 2017, where I had to adapt to the job without the formal training. I love being in a freshman hall because you get to see residents discover RPI and help them successfully navigate their first year.

Other activities I’m involved with on campus include Rensselaer Center for Open Source, where I have played an integral role in creating virtual reality programs to show off RPI (this project is still in its early stages), and symphonic band, where I play the flute. I am continuing to explore other opportunities on campus. Lately I have dedicated time to RPI Crew Club, which I joined this semester.
