Education: B.A. in History with Minors in Gender and Diversity Studies, Jazz Studies, Xavier University
Best College Experience: Volunteering with our International Student community at XU as an Interlink Mentor and ESL conversation partner. Also participating in the “Alternative Break” experiences to Staten Island where we had the opportunity to volunteer at a food pantry during the day and explore NYC in the evenings and a Service Learning summer trip to El Salvador.
Favorite Restaurant in Cincinnati: Baladi Restaurant and Bakery - serving delicious Middle Eastern food and walking distance to campus!
Favorite Author: Barbara Kingsolver - I love her short stories especially.
Favorite TV Show: Modern Family because it always makes me laugh!
Most Memorable Place I've Ever Visited: The Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, which I visited twice- once during the day and once at night. The beauty was absolutely stunning! I also will always remember my visits to Amman, Jordan where people were so welcoming and where I was surprised to find so many Cincinnati connections.
Still on my Bucket List: Continuing to travel to as many countries as I can (one I have always wanted to visit is Peru!)
