Why do you choose to live and work in Baltimore?  

I came here to go to school but I fell in love with the city over the past two years. I chose to live and work here now because the people are friendly and I feel more welcome here than I do in my hometown. There are great minds doing great things here and I want to be a part of it!

What's one surprising fact about yourself?  

I can probably lift more than you.

Go-to snack? 

1 cup Greek yogurt (plain), 1 cup blueberries, 2 tsp walnuts
