OYFA gave me so many great experiences and memories my first year, I wanted to be more involved within the organization. I liked the academic focus of the scholarship and the connections it provides between the current members and alumni. Many of the events we have planned are centered around academic excellence and networking. I'm looking forward to Fireside chats, the Mentor/Mentee program, and our alumni panels this year!
OYFA to me is family. From the very beginning I always felt welcomed. OYFA has helped me grow as a person, student, and friend. I met some of my closest friends through this organization and in the past year we've already created so many memories.
What is something you are passionate about?
Food. I could literally talk for hours about food. Or just eat food. I love cooking, baking, basically anything that has to do with food.
What did you do/plan to do this summer?
Going on a cruise through the Mediterranean! I've never been to Europe before so I'm excited to visit. Also very excited to take pictures and eat good food lol
