Sophomore, Biochemistry

"Growing up in West Virginia, I always knew I wanted to be a Mountaineer, but I never truly understood what it meant to be a Mountaineer until I came to WVU and found my place on campus. I got involved with Project 168 because I saw it as an opportunity to learn more about everything our University has to offer, while allowing me to immerse myself in the Morgantown community. Plus, I was already working towards some parts of the curriculum, so it just made sense to give it a shot. Through Project 168, I’ve been able to participate in different projects, initiatives, and activities that allowed me to better understand myself, the world around me, and how I can make a lasting impact during my time at West Virginia University and beyond."

Organizations: Presidential Student Ambassadors, Honors College Ambassadors, Undergraduate Research Association, Mountaineer Undergraduate Research Review, Student Government Association, and Mountaineer Maniacs.
