Tour Guide at Tulane University

Class of 2022

Hometown: Los Angeles, CA


Major: Public Health

Minor: Spanish & Latin American Studies

My favorite spots in New Orleans are...

Gasa Gasa, Audobon Park, Buffalo Exchange, La Petite Grocery, Croissant D'Or, Magazine St, Garden District, Domilise's, Ba Chi, Company Bagel.

My favorite NOLA festival is...

Po Boy Fest on Oak St! I had a softshell crab po boy that was amaaaazing.

I chose Tulane because...

What first attracted me to Tulane was its Public Health undergraduate program, study abroad opportunities, and the ability to be somewhere that is rich with culture and art. In both New Orleans and Los Angeles (my home town) diversity is a hallmark of the city, and New Orleanians and Angelenos take their differences as a point of pride, not contention. Tulane and its students understand that having a city rich with different cultural histories is the best part about where you live and I really felt that when I stepped on campus.

Favorite Tulane class/professor...

Gender & Society (SOCI 1040) with Professor Starr or Intro to Public Health (SPHU 1010) with Professor Cropley. They're both great lecturers and they keep the class engaged! Professor Cropley is super knowledgeable about Public Health and her anecdotes and stories from her career are amazing to hear! Professor Starr is so well versed in gender literature and her class is fast paced but thoroughly interesting.
