Major: Economics
What do you plan to do post-grad? Hopefully attend Batten to get a Masters in Public Policy
Favorite OYFA Memory: My favorite memory was creating the inaugural Lakas 5k: Glow Run. It was a lot of fun and it was really one of the first times OYFA was able to get the entire UVA and Charlottesville community on board with helping us raise money for The He Cares Foundation. Plus all the late nights with my co-chair, Rachel Zaragoza, and Richard Lay to make the Glow Run happen was an invaluable experience that I learned a lot from.
Would you be a friendly ghost or a scary ghost? Why? I would much rather be a scary ghost. I would lead a much more exciting life and I like hiding and scaring people in real life anyways.
