I want to INSPIRE

Being a student involves so much learning about who you are and navigating the academic world. My goal is to encourage students to learn how they learn best so they can have a great university experience!

As an international student, I am passionate about connecting students to the campus resources that I wish I knew about sooner. I am eager to help students succeed by connecting to themselves as learners and their communities.
