The fall semester of 2021 makes it the second semester of her master’s program in German at the University of Alabama. She is also a Graduate Teaching Assistant and is excited to hone her teaching skills.

She loves meeting people of diverse languages and cultures and is especially interested in feminism, equal human rights, and global peace and relations She has been a member of the Delta Phi Alpha Honors Society since April 2021, and in September 2021, she became a member of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.
