More About Me

During my college application process, I knew I wanted to help create tools that would reduce different types of pollution. Choosing my major was an easy decision because I kenw the Environmental Systems Engineering major at Penn State was the best fit for me. 

There’s nothing else like a Penn State football game at Beaver Stadium. You get to cheer on your team with 107,000 other students, alumni, and fans!

Being an EMS student at Penn State means that you have a wide range of resources offered to you. The small college feel in a large university really makes EMS feel like home.

When I need a laugh, I turn on my favorite TV show: The Office.

The possibilities are endless as a student in EMS because the college really wants you to succeed. You just have to be motivated and work hard, and your education can lead you into any direction you choose.

With my Penn State degree, I hope to help make a positive change in the world by designing a type of filter that captures carbon. Developing a way to eliminate air pollution is one of my own personal goals that could tremendously change the world as we know it.

After class, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and hiking.
