Biography

Career goal: Public health informatics

About: I am a junior here in the School of Informatics and Computing majoring in Informatics. I am specializing in epidemiology and minoring in Spanish. 

I chose IUPUI, and more specifically SoIC, because I knew that I had unwavering support here and would never question where to go if I needed help. That has definitely rung true since I have been here! 

Transitioning from high school to college is a big deal. It can be scary and nerve-wracking.  Being an SoIC student ambassador allows me to make that big leap a little less intimidating for others. I am also an SOIC peer mentor, a LiFT Scholars Program peer mentor, and a member of IUPUI’s rowing team.
