She is a student and an aspiring healthcare professional who currently works full time as a customer service specialist to support her family. Hermes is a proud member of the LGBTQ community and identifies as queer/pansexual.

Her interests besides healthcare include dance, listening to music, writing and keeping up on current events. She plans to complete her Associate of Arts degree in 2023, and then to pursue a career in nursing, or medicine.
