What was your most memorable moment or time at F&M? 

Spring Arts Weekend this past April. It was a beautiful day, and everyone was together. It was a perfect way to close out my four years. My favorite part was hanging out with my closest friends and eating delicious food from local food truck operators. Sitting out in the sun was a great way to de-stress after a long week of work.

What did you enjoy most about the College?

F&M provided me with the support and freedom to learn about myself not only as a student, but also as a person. The invaluable friendships and knowledge I gained from my classroom experiences will last a lifetime. When I came to F&M, I never saw myself pursuing a degree in public health, but the encouragement from my professors and peers led me in that direction. Four years later, I couldn't imagine majoring in anything else.

What are your plans for after graduation?

I am moving either to Boston or Washington, D.C., to get more hands-on experience in the public health sector and then plan on getting my master's degree in public health.
