Currently, she is an English Language and Literature major and a Music minor at Central Washington University where she also works as a peer writing tutor.

The Village Art in the Park scholarship has helped me so much in my college career. Having the financial stability it grants has allowed me to explore the college experience fully. I’ve taken fascinating classes, made amazing friends and most importantly, I have been able to find my passions and pursue them in ways I never imagined. Village Art in the Park has been such a wonderful support in my life, and I am so grateful for everything they have done for me and so many other people in the community.
