I'm a sophomore majoring in political science, and I'm really passionate about national security issues, nuclear policy, and music! You can always find me with a cup of coffee and/or a piece of cake. I really love cake.

Obstacle I've overcome
Anxiety, depression, and so many other mental health challenges
