Liberal Arts Honors/Psychology
Hanover High School in Mechanicsville, Virginia

I am a recent graduate of Hanover High School in Mechanicsville, Virginia. During those years, I was constantly on the stage. Leading our show choir, I was a Dance Captain for two years. Through the Tri-M Music Honor Society, I developed a passion for using art as a service to others. Consequently, I spent hours planning, leading, and producing a benefit concert for Fox Elementary School when it burned down. I also got to represent my school as a featured soloist in both All-District Chorus and All-Virginia Chorus, and earned the National School Choral Award as well. As Vice President, then secretary, of my Theatre Company’s ITS troupe, I co-led community engagement events like: Coffeehouses, truncated sensory-friendly performances, and shadow nights. Offstage, being with loved ones, writing, dancing, and listening to music are some of my favorite pastimes. As a Psychology major trekking down the Pre-Med track in the Liberal Arts Honors Program, I hope to feed my curiosity through scientific exploration alongside my artistic pursuits. I can’t wait to be a part of this beautiful Dedman community and to nurture old passions while making new discoveries at UT in the fall!
