Dipping my toes further into education! This month I got to work with film/tv/web series students from Ithaca College.

Pass with

Distinction!

I got to study abroad in London in the fall of my junior year at Ithaca College! I had such an incredible time exploring, taking dance classes at Pineapple Studios, traveling to other countries in Europe, discovering more about myself, and growing in my faith.
