Fun Fact: My name means wealth and good fortune

Why did you choose UGA? I wanted to go to a school that had extraordinary academics and organizations, and wanted to find a college that gave me the chance to build close relationships with other students and professors. Before choosing which university I felt the most connected to, I especially knew I wanted the opportunity to meet different types of people who had a wide range of experiences and perspectives that would help me grow as a person.

Favorite memory as a Bulldog Engineer?  My favorite memory as a Bulldog Engineer are definitely those late night study sessions with my friends at Driftmier! We had just gotten back from a year of online classes, and it gave me a sense of comfort knowing that there was always such an amazing support system 24/7 willing to help out everyone that needed some aid with transitioning back to in person activities. From working on problems for hours to late night food adventures there was never a dull moment at Driftmier!
