Major: Biology and Ethnic Studies
Hometown: Las Vegas, NV
My fellowship experience:Prior to my fellowship with the CRCRC, I was not certain of what I could “do” with my Ethnic Studies major.

In turn, the CRCRC has increased my passion for social justice, providing me with insight on the various careers that would enable me to actively work towards the end of discrimination within society.
