What do you like about the UD College of Agriculture and Natural Resources?

I love the support that I get from everyone around me. Whether it is a faculty member or another peer I know that anything I need help on or want to pursue I will get help and be able to succeed in the best way possible. We are a community with similar goals in mind and that is something really comforting for me.

What is your most memorable AG or UD experience?

During my first semester ever at the University of Delaware, my animal science lab was one that allowed us to be hands on with the farm and animals right away. In the first couple of weeks of lab, I remember recording data for the baby calves and afterwards we were able to pet them for a bit. I was giving one a neck scratch and they leaned completely into me and stuck out their tongue! It was adorable.

What are your career goals?

I wish to become a veterinarian in the future and have the ability to use my knowledge to make an impact on not only an animals life but the owner of the animal as well.

What is an interesting or unusual fact about you?

I have 5 wisdom teeth.

My favorite book: All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
