Why Miami?

While I could see myself attending school at many universities, Miami is the only place where I could see myself thriving in all aspects of life.

Step outside of your comfort zone, you'll never know who you could be if you don't give yourself the opportunities to grow.

Who has been your favorite professor and why?

My favorite professor so far is Tracey Haynes. She explains topics very clearly and welcomes questions, but she also asks for student feedback on her teaching to make sure the whole class is being catered to in terms of fully digesting the material.
