Advice to students: Get involved with your campus community outside of classes! This can mean joining a club or organization, but it doesn’t have to—campus jobs and leadership opportunities are great ways to be involved as well! Involvement will allow you to build an on-campus support network, connect with mentors, and hone skills that you will continue to use, even after you graduate.
If you could be any major in your cluster, what would it be? Why? If I could be any major in my cluster, I would be cytotechnology. I think it would be awesome to work in the health care field in a more “behind-the-scenes” capacity. Cytotechnologists play the role of detecting cell abnormalities—such as cancers—in patients, which is a crucial contribution both to the field and to the people it serves.
Biography: I was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, which is where I lived until I moved an hour away to go to college. Between Indiana and Ohio, I have lived in the Midwest my entire life. I love going on road trips, especially to places with lots of nature. When I’m not at work, I enjoy hiking, doing yoga, reading, and working out. I also like to cook and have fun trying out new recipes. My favorite things to learn about include world religions, social issues, and psychology/mental health.
