Future plans:

How has your major contributed to your professional or personal development?

My majors have contributed to my professional and personal development by expanding my knowledge on what it means to be a global citizen while teaching me to be more empathetic and understanding of others. My majors have taught me how to interact with others from all walks of life as I expand my knowledge on topics and issues that I am passionate about.

What has been your proudest or most significant accomplishment during your Gonzaga career?

My proudest accomplishment would be my work as a delegate and as a leader within the GU Model United Nations team. From winning awards at conferences to helping others grow as writers, researchers, public speakers, and leaders, I am extremely honoured to have been a part of the GUMUN team.
