Alverno College
Biology, Creative Writing Minor

I am a student at Alverno college in Milwaukee, WI majoring in Biology with a Creative Writing support. I am set to graduate in December of 2018. At Alverno, I am a teaching assistant/mentor for the Alverno College’s Girls’ Academy of Science and Mathematics. I also started a science journalism student organization on campus and write for the Milwaukee Area Science Advocates. I aspire to be a scientist as well as a science writer. Aside writing, I like to read science-fiction novels and write short stories.
