Gur gur bëhet mur, mur mur bëhet kalaja / Stone by stone, you build a wall, wall by wall, you build a castle.
  – Albanian Proverb

Over the course of the last two years, I have had the privilege of being a Paul D. Coverdell Peace Corps Fellow, the communications officer for Graduate Planning Society, serve as the only MS Urban Planning CAPLA Student Ambassador, a recipient of several scholarships and designations including the Arizona Representative for the Transportation Research Board 2020 Minority Fellows and the Amy Edwards Memorial Scholarship, and have held two teaching assistant positions and a research assistant position. Following graduation, I will be the only individual within my family to obtain a post-graduate degree. CAPLA and the University of Arizona have given me an unparalleled experience and these memories and the developed relationships will remain with me for the rest of my life.
