I can’t believe the semester has ended! It’s been such a fast but fulfilling semester, and I can’t wait to talk about it here! I continued my participation in several organizations I am involved in on campus.

With finals conquered and my extracurriculars on hold until the spring, the most challenging yet rewarding semester I’ve experienced thus far is over.
