My favorite NOLA festival is...

Beignet Fest!! Try the fried chicken and beignets with honey!

I chose Tulane because...

There are so many fantastic academic opportunities, and everyone at Tulane is incredibly welcoming. As a first-generation college student, going to a university was daunting, and Tulane's culture of inclusivity heavily influenced my decision.

Favorite Tulane class/professor...

Literary Investigations with Adam McKeown and Hauntology with Nathan Halverson. Both these professors are amazing and really expanded my love for literature and film.

My favorite spots in New Orleans are...

Audubon Park, where I take my dog on walks! City park, especially during the holiday season when there are light displays in all the oak trees! Not in New Orleans but hiking at Tunica Falls (Tulane runs trips through our rec center!) My dog loves swimming in the waterfalls!

I'm involved with...

The Tulane University Service-Dog Training and Education Program (TUSTEP)
