What is your favorite college memory?

Stone Arch Bridge and campus walks with friends any time the sun is even remotely out! 

Did you participate in any student organizations, Learning Abroad programs, research or internship opportunities, or other related experiences? How have you learned from them?

In the spring of 2022, I participated in a Learning Abroad program to Sicily and Florence. I got to learn about food sustainability in the most beautiful country. I was able to try so many new foods and wines and get a feel for Italian culture. I've learned that you have to put yourself in uncomfortable situations to really grow, and that is exactly what I did during my time abroad.

CHAARG was an amazing student organization that helped me grow in so many ways and was where I found some of my best friends. CHAARG is a health and wellness group where I got to try new fitness studios in the Minneapolis area, like Barry’s, each week with other girls from UMN! 

What have you learned about yourself during your time in CLA?

I learned that I do best in classes when I am engaged with the professor and classmates. I need to be in a focused learning environment in order to perform my best. 

Is there an app you hate but use anyways?


What's next for you? What are your post-graduation plans?

In the fall I will be attending law school. I am excited to continue my education and further study and practice the law! I am nervous but excited for the next 3 years!
