Best IU experience so far: Being at the IU vs. UK game with my entire family. Half of my family went to UK so allegiances were torn! It was so fun to see the resurrection of Hoosier basketball and celebrate on Kirkwood after!

My greatest role model and why: My parents. They have taught me to see everything (even disappointments) as an opportunity to try something new and seize it.

Favorite movie and why: Free Willy. There is something about a young boy & his whale best friend that makes my tear up EVERY TIME.

Favorite class at IU and why: Business Communications. I learned so many practical skills that can be applied to the professional world. Plus, it transformed my writing!

Favorite musical artist/group: Britney Spears. Her music is just so catchy!

Something I’m really passionate about: Traveling! It is such a life changing opportunity to step outside of your comfort zone and spend an extended period of time in a new culture. I want to encourage people not to just “see” these different places, but actually experience them.
