I’m SO incredibly excited to finally announce that I will be attending Cornell University to study plant science beginning this August!

You might have noticed that I took a hiatus from social media and this website for the past several months. 

Here’s a brief update: 

I finished up my last year of high school in 2019 and was offered a Transfer Option from Cornell University. A Transfer Option is essentially a guaranteed transfer into the university after one year at another institution. 

I attended Louisiana Tech (Go Dawgs!!) for a year to satisfy the requirements. Although I enjoyed my time at Tech, it was extremely stressful because I was required to maintain a high GPA in all classes, hence my absence from social media. I’m sad to say goodbye to all of the amazing friends I’ve made while at Tech, but am optimistic about what the future holds; this will definitely be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Thanks to everyone who has supported me throughout this process as well as all of my amazing, encouraging friends and family - without you all this couldn’t have happened. 

All the Best,


P.S. - I'm studying for finals right now but expect more posts in the next month or so!
