Statement: "My proudest accomplishment at Union College thus far has been the recognition and nomination that I received from the Union Faculty to be elected to membership in the Alpha of New York Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. I am so grateful for the close relationships that I have been able to form with Union faculty members, especially those within the French and Political Science departments, and it is truly a great honor to represent Union College in this national honor society. Earning this recognition would not have been possible without the close-knit community of French professors that have guided and challenged me, both personally and academically, which has ultimately resulted in my true appreciation and love of the French language and culture."
