What is your favorite class you’ve taken at St. Olaf and why?: Moral Psychology because it was interesting, changed my perspective, and challenged me to think about concepts and morals in ways I hadn’t before. It was also a class that I have found to be applicable to other classes and life in general – plus the professor Jeanine Grenberg is AMAZING.

Describe yourself in one word: sporadic
Call or text?: call
What is your ideal date?: Anything that involves surprises or fairs!
Finish this sentence: A guy looks his best when… he smiles
Finish this sentence: A girl looks her best when… she is confident
What do you want the ladies of St. Olaf to know?: That everyone is fantastic and beautiful in their own way. You don’t have to conform to different styles or try to look like someone else or be someone else to be amazing. I think people at Olaf can get overwhelmed here because so many people here successful, vibrant, beautiful, and are truly wonderful. But this shouldn’t make anyone here feel that they are less than anyone else; it isn’t about being like someone else or looking like someone else! It’s about being the best you that you can be – whoever that is and whoever she stands for! :) Don’t underestimate yourself!
