Where did you go for undergrad and what did you major in?
I am pursuing my Bachelors in Urban Studies and Planning with a minor in Sociology. I am also a 4+1 MUP candidate!
Why did you choose to attend DURP at U of I?
I chose to join the Department of Urban and Regional Planning because I have had a growing interest and passion for social issues for a notable portion of my life. DURP, which includes faculty and my peers, makes me feel confident that I can pursue that passion and turn it into something much bigger.
What are your career ambitions?
I hope to stay in the Chicago Metropolitan area to work on bringing equity to overlooked and underserved communities, such as those on the Southeast Side, where my parents grew up. My family has deep roots in Chicago, and I would love to embrace that history.
