Summary

Originally from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, I am currently finishing my freshman year at American University in Washington, DC. I am in the School of Public Affairs and am considering becoming a Communications, Legal Systems, Economics, and Government (CLEG) major, with a possible minor in French.

At AU, I am a member of the American University Varsity swim team, which competes in the Patriot League Conference. The swim team practices six days a week for a total of  25 hours while in season, which lasts from September through February. I am also a member of the Legal Eagles organization at AU.
