Charity enjoys being a biology major and psychology minor. It’s no wonder that she is always geeking about biological systems to her roommate. However, she is very excited to be able to share her passion by helping other students easily understand biology and why it's so awesome. But she will try not to overdo it though. When she is not studying biology, you can usually find her listening to music or reading a good book. She also enjoys relaxing and hanging out with friends as well as participating in various clubs around campus.

In her spare time, Jodi enjoys singing, dancing and and live theater. If you need some help with Pre-Calculus this fall, this ginger is ready to lend a hand.
