About Me: As a "military brat," I have lived all around the US and the world, so I know exactly what it is like to do the awkward introductions around new people that you probably had to do at the beginning of your USC journey. I love all different animals, and I am a sucker for anything involving sports or live music.

Favorite Quote: "To play a wrong note is insignificant. To play without passion is inexcusable."- Ludwig van Beethoven

Advice to Students: Give yourself some grace and try to do your best in all you do. Your "best" may not look the same as everybody else's, and that's okay. Your "best" may also look different from day to day, and that's also okay. Finally, ask your professors for help if you need to; even though they might seem scary and intimidating, that's mostly likely not accurate.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
