“While in the sorority Delta Zeta the extracurricular activities I did included working for Habitat for Humanity, Relay for Life, and raising money for the Delta Zeta philanthropy, The Starkey Hearing Foundation. I also volunteered at The Boys and Girls Club in downtown Knoxville for about 5 months on my own in 2017. While at UTK I was also a notetaker for the office of disability services for a couple classes.”
