ACTIVITIES
I enjoy reading books as well as keeping up with current events. Additionally, I love reading articles related to fashion, beauty, pop culture and wellness, as they pertain to industries I hope to work for someday. I’ve participated in charity events such as Relay for Life and am always looking for new ways to pay it forward, whether it be volunteer work or donations to causes I believe in.
