About Me: I am originally from Israel but have lived in North Carolina and Oklahoma before moving to South Carolina in 2021. I am a proud dog aunt, fluent in four languages, and super excited to be a part of the Gamecock family! In my spare time I like to travel, read, and spend time with cool humans-- my family and friends. 

Favorite Quote: "Everything can be taken from a person but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way". -Viktor Frankl 

Advice to Students: Be yourself, ask questions, and get involved. Have fun, take advantage of this time and the opportunities presented to you, but don't forget self-care. Most importantly, remember that you're not alone. Share your experiences and be vulnerable, other students are probably feeling the same.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
