What advice would you give to someone coming to Davis as a Freshman or Transfer? As someone who attended UC Davis for all four years, my advice to anyone coming in would be to get out of your comfort zone and explore all that the university and the city of Davis has to offer. It may be scary at first, especially if you don't know anybody, the end result is worth it.

What is your ultimate dream job? To become a primary care physician

What do you like to do in your spare time? I'm constantly trying to find ways to be more involved in local nonprofit organizations.

What is one surprising thing that you now realize about post-college life? Probably some of my best memories I have had so far as been in college, and I did a lot of growing up during my time in undergrad. However, as I am moving forward in life, I realized, I am really looking forward to the next chapter and am excited that I am one step closer to my dreams.

What is your proudest accomplishment? Discovering the many parts of myself while at UC Davis.
