Hello! I am a student at Princeton University pursuing a major in Molecular Biology with a certificate (minor) in Dance. I grew up and attended high school in New York City, balancing my academic work with science research and training in a pre-professional dance program. I tutored various levels of math as well as chemistry and biology throughout high school, including serving as a teaching assistant for a biology class my senior year. I am really passionate about helping other students understand topics that seem complicated or intimidating, as I’ve always found learning much easier and more interesting when I have a deeper understanding of the material! Outside of academics, I love to dance, and I also love horseback riding and spending time with animals!
