Jo will always be your #1 Bro!

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Notre Dame chapter.

Josephine (Jo) Gallagher is one of a kind.  She has a lot of #classicjo moments that will make you laugh hysterically.  She is always down to go out and have fun with you, but she’s just as eager to stay in, eat junk food, and watch movies on Netflix all night.  She is one of the smartest people ever, seriously.  Most of the papers she writes are the results of all-nighters, and yet, most of these papers end up with A’s.  Her French skills will seduce you, and she’s not afraid to talk about ANYTHING with you.  If you accidentally rub her elbow in your sleep and wake her up, she won’t even get mad about it.  She has the absolute cutest dog ever, and she cries over fluffy golden retriever videos.  Jo is one-fourth of Lyonslove 105, and she will truly be a bestie for life.
