“Every morning I wake up an optimist. I can’t help it. The sun has risen and given me one more day  – one more chance – to do anything I put my mind to. In return, I cease all of the opportunities I am given. I take myself out of my comfort zone by trying something new. I do so to push myself that much closer to finding and becoming the person I hope to be someday. I challenge you to do the same. Wake up an optimist. Wake up with the mindset that you can pursue anything you want.

I am here to empower you to share your unique perspective and background with the college community. Also, I am here to help you connect to activities, clubs, and staff. I can share with you all I have learned during my time in CSSH (best places to study on campus or interesting courses to take). And when dealing with hardships – whether its being thousands of miles away from their close ones or having to go through some serious culture shock – I can be someone you can talk to. Always feel free to reach out to me!”
