Best IU experience so far: Traveling to India after freshman year – it was a truly eye-opening experience with unforgettable memories.

One thing I want to do before I leave Bloomington/campus: Rush the court after an IUBB NCAA tournament win.

My greatest role model: J.K. Rowling. She overcame apathetic responses to her work to create an incredibly universal story.

Favorite movie and why: The Inside Job. I enjoy crime movies (but am not a criminal).

Favorite class at IU and why: Spanish composition.  I had a great professor and learned a ton about being able to communicate in Spanish. Also saw some good Spanish cinema.

Something I’m really passionate about: Skiing
