What I like: Watching Youtube videos, making playlists on Spotify, following corgi Instagram accounts, going to concerts, drinking matcha or vanilla chai tea lattes, and spending too much time on Twitter.

What I do: My hobbies include bullet journaling, spending time with family and friends, cooking, going on nature trails, working at Starbucks, and volunteering.

Why I joined aKDPhi: I wanted to join aKDPhi because I wanted to make the most of my time here at UF. I wanted to branch out of my comfort zone and joining aKDPhi has given me the outlet to do just that. I also wanted to grow both personally and academically. As someone who was always filled with self-doubt, sisters are always there to support and encourage me in all that I do.
