Hi everybody! I'm Susana. Originally from the Windy City, I now find myself in the middle of Ohio at Denison! I love putting a creative spin to anything I do, and have always been drawn to the Arts and Writing because through them, I can express myself in so many different ways. I'm also a member of Delta Gamma, and absolutely love coffee. If you have any questions, you can reach me at meza_s1@denison.edu
