Major: Social Policy

What do you love about being in Significant Others?

I love Sig O because it is such an easy-going, talented group of women. The majority of us are not studying vocal performance or theater but the amount of talent that Sig O has constantly blows me away. We take ourselves seriously when necesary, but are always having a good time when we rehearse or perform. Basically, I feel like Sig O is a group of women who both sing and eat snacks in impressive quantities–I’m into that.

What made you want to audition?

I auditioned for Sig O as a sophomore. I didn’t have a creative/musical outlet during freshman year and I realized how much I needed that. I’ve been singing and doing musical theater for years and it has always been a fun way of keeping me sane.

What can you tell us about Monday’s show, Sig Bros?

Sig O loves snapbacks, beer, and a good pun. So Sig Bros was born. Also, we love that our abbreviation for Significant Others is Sig O. Our parents are always confusing the name for a sorority or frat. We don’t correct them. #rushSigO

What else are you involved in on campus?

I am involved in Northwestern’s chapter of Peer Health Exchange, a really fantastic national non-profit that trains college students to teach a comprehensive health curriculum in public high schools. Next year I will serve as one of two Co-Coordinators for PHE at Northwestern. I am also involved in my sorority, Pi Beta Phi.

What do you want to do when you graduate?

Woah, scary question. I definitely want to work in education, but I’m not sure where that will take me yet. It would be great to get some classroom experience through a program like Teach for America, and then maybe go on to work in state or federal departments of education or a non-profit focused on urban education.
