When I was 18, I made the tough decision to immigrate to Quebec, Canada, leaving behind my family and friends in order to start my academic journey at Concordia University. Even though this shift was difficult, I quickly adapted to my new surroundings and enjoyed every passing year more than the last. During my undergrad, I was involved with multiple extracurriculars such as performing in vocal show cases, participating in an intensive summer Italian opera course at the Scuola Giovanni Grasso Rossini lab, and I played the role of Cathleen in the opera Riders to the Sea in 2018. Time flew by so fast and before I knew it, I was standing on stage receiving my undergrad diploma. In 2019, I graduated with a degree in vocal performance and a minor in education.
As for what I’m currently doing, I am still studying, because I am obsessed with expanding my knowledge. However, now I am a graduate student at Concordia in the department of education, and currently hold a seat on the Graduate Symposium Committee. I also volunteer as a program coordinator and I am an assistant manager of the undergrad volunteers for the Concordia University Student Parent Center. Based on my life history I can say with pride that I strongly support personal growth. I not only wish to continuously be inspired, but hope to inspire others to become the best version of themselves.
