In my short time, here at Ohio Northern University I have taken strides to create positive change not only within my university but the surrounding community as well. As president of my social fraternity I have worked alongside my executive committee to plan numerous campus events for both Relay for Life and St. Jude's Research Hospital to aid in their fight against cancer. I am also partnering with the Village Council to establish a local dog park for the college and community to enjoy. I want to strengthen the link between our university and the village community that has given us so much. Moreover, I am pursuing mental health awareness and plan to increase its presence on campus. Mental health has always been a topic personal to me, and even inspired me to pursue my pharmacy degree with an interest in research and drug development. Raising awareness on this topic will be beneficial to not only my campus community but the surrounding area as well. I firmly believe that one positive catalyst for change can spark that fire in others, and I am working start the chain reaction here at ONU
