Word or Phrase that Describes Me


Get to Know Your Counselor

Who has had the greatest influence on your life?

My parents have had the greatest influence on my life by far. They’ve supported me, given me unconditional love, shown me so much grace, and have pushed me to be the best version of myself. They both have been incredible examples of trusting God and serving others. I owe so much of who I am today to them!

What was the greatest lesson you learned in college?

I learned to wait on God’s timing, that it’s okay to say no to things, to try new things out of my comfort zone, and to take time for myself. God was so evident in my time in college. I learned who I was, made new lifelong friendships, and learned to love the artistic side of me - and I wouldn’t change the lessons I learned for the world!

What is your favorite place on campus? Why?

My favorite place on campus is either the top of the Jesus Saves parking structure at sunset or the walkway in front of the library at golden hour. I really like light, so going up to the parking structure to watch the sunset was a habit of mine when I was in school! I also just love the way the sunlight comes through the leaves on the trees on the walkway by the library. If that wasn’t enough, lights are strung on the trees during Christmas time. You can’t go wrong with twinkle lights and Christmas time!

Where do you hang out in Los Angeles?

I don’t tend to hangout in Los Angeles, but when I do it’s usually for a show recording! I’ve been to multiple sitcom recordings and the Price is Right. You can typically find me taking in Old Town Pasadena or Palos Verdes Shores. If you haven’t been to either, trust me, it is worth the trip! And it’s not far from Biola!
