  • Senior, Anthropology

Throughout my undergraduate years, I strived to use every opportunity presented to me to discover what my academic passions are. It look exploring several majors and studying abroad to land on Anthropology. I'm grateful to the staff at the Honors College for their encouragement, knowledge, and kindness. Without them, I wouldn't have had the courage to pursue my interests or plan to obtain my masters degree in Museum Studies and Art History. Additionally, I was awarded the Judith G. Scott Honors Scholarship in 2019 which allowed me to study abroad in London where I delved into British literature, history, and art. It was then that I knew what my career path was, so I'm incredibly thankful for that time.

After landing on my Anthropology major, I spent August 2019- December 2019 as well as January 2021 working on undergraduate research in the Archaeological Research Laboratory at UWM. During this time, I got to work with incredible artifacts and felt right at home in the universities archives. I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next, and becoming a member of Phi Beta Kappa is the perfect way to end my undergraduate career.
