About Me: I am originally from Fort Mill, SC but have been living in Columbia ever since I came here for my undergraduate degree in 2015. I love trying new restaurants (but my favorites are Tazza, Cantina 76, and Za's), traveling, hanging out with friends, and watching Netflix with my cat, Mr. Finn! 

Favorite Quote: "You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." - Winnie the Pooh

Advice to Students: Soak up every moment and opportunity during your time at UofSC! There are endless opportunities to learn, grow, and be involved! 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
