I’m passionate about … the education gap.
As an Engaged Ambassador, I … advance Engage Cornell’s mission of increasing opportunities to participate in community-engaged experiences by meeting students where they are and providing mentorship/guidance to students at any level of engagement experience they find themselves in.
I got involved because … I wanted to see more people of color like myself involved in community engagement on and off campus.
My friends would say I’m … funny and goofy with a balanced drive for success.
Best Cornell memory (so far!): Slope Day 2016
Fun fact: I worked in Egypt last summer and can read Arabic.
