What is an academic experience - like a book, project, or research paper - that has had an impact on your life?

Last semester I took an honors seminar on positive psychology. I wrote a research paper on the effects of self-compassion on body image, and it drastically changed the way I view and treat myself. I apply lessons from that class in my everyday life, as well as in my theatre work.

What do you love most about Towson University?

The incredible opportunities that Towson offers its students to get involved and gain professional experience. Also the good vibes.

Why did you choose the Honors College?

I wanted to broaden my experiences and explore new topics outside of my major. It's also a great way to meet people!

What advice would you give a prospective Honors student?

Don't be afraid to reach out to professors, students, alumni, etc. Build those connections!
