About Me

I am intensely passionate when it comes to food and its effect on society. What started as a hobby turned out to be a gateway to a career, whether that be health food catering or working as a dietician or both I honestly don’t know yet. I do know the deadly food culture of America absolutely has to change. I expect to be a leading factor of that change through advocacy in school lunch programs and educating the general public on proper nutrition.

Campus and Community Involvement

I am involved with several different organizations that cover a variety of my interests and passions. I am actively engaged as a student leader in my on-campus church called Mission24, which seeks to serve the campus and share the gospel with UH students. I am currently employed part time as a prep cook for Catering on Cullen, where I am able to develop my skills as a chef while gaining more knowledge on food service catering. I have a soft spot for the least of these and volunteer accordingly.

Awards and Honors

I was distinguished as an AP scholar in high school. I have secured a spot on the dean’s list for the Conrad Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management for two of the three semesters that I was a member of that college.

Study Abroad

My plans for study abroad remain up in the air. I am excited about the possibility of experiencing a culture completely different than my own and traveling beyond the continental U.S.

Research

I am heavily interested in studying the effects of food on society; how people perceive food, how different tastes vary, etc. I plan on doing research in the area of food science. I recently developed an interest in the diet detailed in the Mosaic law of the Pentateuch and hope to one day expand my knowledge and conduct research on it.

Future Endeavors

I honestly don’t know what the future has in store for me; I’m excited to continue to be a part of campus ministry and furthering my knowledge and passion for the culinary arts and nutrition. I look forward to UH’s expansion as a Tier One university and the effects it has on the student body. Go Coogs Tier One!
