About

I am a Psychology major and plan to become a researcher after graduate school.

What are some of your interests?
My interests include horror books—it’s my goal to finish reading all of Stephen King’s novels in the next couple of years. Also, I am obsessed with all LGBTQIA+-focused entertainment like RuPaul’s Drag Race. My favorite TV show at the moment is Queen of the Universe.

Why do you want to be a peer mentor?
In retrospect, I realize I would have benefitted a lot from having an upperclassman guide me through my first year in college as a pre-health major, so I’d like to offer my guidance to incoming pre-health students. I have been a resident advisor at the 55th Street Residence Hall for a year, which has made me realize how passionate I am about helping incoming students acclimate to the college environment. Also, I was born in Brazil, so I know how unsettling it can be to feel like an outsider. Those two factors allow me to relate to incoming students on a deeper level.
