BU American Lung Cancer Screening Initiative

BU ALSCI is a club at BU that focuses on spreading awareness to kids, adults, and other people about the risks of lung cancer and the importance of being screened often. I am a general member in this club and I really enjoy being a part of it. Last year, we came up with a curriculum for middle school and elementary school kids on the disparities of lung cancer screening.

I used to do competitive dance at Boss Academy of Performing Arts for about 10 years. I did ballet, jazz, contemporary, and lyrical and did group dances and duets. I don't dance competitively anymore but I do recreational dance.
