What year are you?
Little Falls, NJ
What is one innovation you can't live without?
One innovation that I lost definitely can’t live without would probably be my AirPods!
What do you do when you're not in class?
When I’m not in class I’m either doing homework, working at the concussion clinic, or hanging out with friends finding new and exciting things to do around Gainesville!
Where do you see yourself in five years?
In five years, I see myself in medical school.
Why did you decide to be in IA?
I decided to join IA as a way to differentiate myself from all of the other Pre-Health Biology majors. It is a great conversation starter in interviews!
How do you spend your fall semesters?
This upcoming fall I plan to take online classes, do further research for the concussion clinic, and enjoy football games!
Who is your biggest role mode? Why?
My Parents are my biggest role models. Seeing them grow in their own professions through the years while still maintaining a healthy and close-knit family lifestyle is truly inspiring.
What is one piece of advice you would give to an incoming IA freshman?
One piece of advice I would give an incoming IA freshman would be to take risks. The University of Florida and the Innovation Academy have so much to offer and you’ll never know what or who you’ll encounter along the way!
