A person who loves others and selflessly serves them. I think the some of greatest rewards in life come from this and it inspires me to love and serve other people with the same zeal.  

What would you say is your fashions sense/style? 

I love scarves, jeans, and cardigans. You will probably see me wearing a scarf every day during the winter!  

What advice would you give to anyone on how to enjoy their college experience? 

Take advantage of all the opportunities offered in college, whether that be studying abroad, trying something new, or joining a club, and get involved on campus! It allows for a much better college experience. Some of my favorite memories from college have been spending time with the girls in my sorority! 

Do you have any hobbies?

I love cooking, reading, listening to music, and spending time with my friends.  

Favorite travel destination and why?

Italy! It has stunning scenery, the people are friendly, and the food is fantastic! I went there with my family a few years ago and I fell in love with it instantly! 

What has been your most enlightening experience in college? What will you take away from your experience?

My most enlightening experience was when I studied abroad in Ireland last summer. It was an incredible trip! I got to travel all over the country and see many different historical sites and natural wonders. I also go to learn about Irish culture and examine the differences between their country and ours. It was a very eye opening experience. I learned so much about myself and about the world. I encourage everyone to study abroad!
