Why you chose your major

I enjoy math and want to go into data science, I also like the idea of doing research.

Favorite and/or most impactful course

So far my freshman honors seminar, Arab Intellectualism on Love and Gender, has had the biggest impact on me because it opened me to new perspectives and a culture I otherwise wouldn't have learned about.

Research or internship experience

I'm a freshman right now, but I'm on track to start research my sophomore year!

Other involvement

Apart from being a CAS delegate, I am also a Husker Pantry volunteer, and honors student, and am involved in OASIS.

Why you chose Nebraska

I've always wanted to go out of state and was fortunate enough to receive a great offer from UNL.
