Why did you join USG?

I joined USG because Fordham has given me such a great community of people in both the students and faculty, and I want to help ensure that every student at Fordham feels the sense of community that I do.

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

I am hoping to make mental health resources more accessible on campus and create conversation around this issue in an effort to destigmatize the topic of mental illness and normalize discussion of mental health.

If you really knew me, you’d know that…

if google maps tells you it will take fifteen minutes to walk somewhere, I will get there in ten.

What is your favorite quote?

“For what it’s worth: its never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald

Where are you originally from?
