Fun fact about you

I love listening to movie scores/soundtracks!! I’m a huge orchestra nerd and enjoy playing the piano and flute:)

Why are you excited to be a Peer Advisor?

I love being able to help people in all aspects of life!! Being a peer advisor lets me do that in a welcoming environment and during a time when every student needs a little bit of help.

What is your favorite thing about UMD?

There is so much to love about UMD that I don’t think I can pick a favorite!! Having the ability to explore what nature has to offer up North gives such a unique experience that you wouldn’t get many other places. In addition, the variety of organizations and great people on campus allows students of all types to find ways to make UMD home. I think it’s amazing that there is truly something here for everyone.
