    About Me
    I am a first-generation immigrant student with a passion for helping my community. I volunteer with many organizations and donate everyday items to people in Gainesville and other countries. In addition to volunteering, I spend my time hiking and exploring historical locations around the world.

    Favorite Campus Location

    The College of The Arts’ courtyard is a unique place that displays its students' talents and provides a peaceful green space. The courtyard has a small pond, which is an excellent place to read a book. The trees hovering over the picnic tables make it a great place to relax.

    Favorite UF Fun Fact
    Lake Alice is a 130-acre conservation area on campus where you can explore the natural setting along the many trails and docks. Occasionally you will see an alligator swimming in the lake or sunbathing on the shore.
