Family ties to Texas A&M:


I chose to attend Texas A&M because…

It made the most financial sense for my family while offering a plethora of on campus resources.

My favorite things to do on campus are…

Taking a study break at All Faiths Chapel or going on a walk where I let my feet just wander!

When I have free time, I like…

To create art, practice yoga, hang out with friends, thrift, read, and explore!

The craziest thing I’ve done is…

Traveled abroad solo!

My favorite place to study is…

The Langford Architecture Building, but when the weather is nice, I love studying on the quad behind the Liberal Arts building!

My favorite ECON professor is…

Thus far, it has been Dr. Chelsea Strickland who taught Economics of Crime when I took it during Spring ’23.

My favorite part of being an Economics student is…

Being able to bring an economic perspective to discussions about Life, the Universe, and everything!

If I could share an afternoon with anyone, I would love to share it with…

My dear friends who have passed.

If I knew I could not fail, I would…

Become an astronaut!

If money was not a consideration, I would love to…

Travel the world as an artist!

What is your passion and how are you committed to pursuing it?

My passion is creating a sustainable future and I am committed to pursuing it through the continued study of behavioral economics, environmental studies, psychology, and other interdisciplinary fields that can help to explain human behavior within the context of the systems we have built to sustain ourselves.

After graduation, I plan to…

Work in data visualization for a year, then pursue a Master’s program in behavioral/applied economics.

The one Texas A&M experience I will always remember is…

Being a part of the Human Behavior Lab; it has been such a beautiful opportunity for me to apply my formal education in a meaningful way.
