Year of graduation: 2016

Major/concentration: Psychology and Biomedical Studies

Favorite place to study: Well, my friends are always in the cage, so I like that.

Favorite food: I’m going to say my favorite meal. Steak and shrimp with mashed potatoes and gravy along with green beans and chocolate milk.

Favorite movie: The Lion King

Hobbies: I’m really not good at sitting still (seriously, ask my roommate). So, I like things where I can be active- dancing, golfing, innertube waterpolo (yeah pooligans!), running…etc. I love singing, reading, working with kids, and being around friends also!

If you could be one superhero, who would you be and why?: Tatum Holland, because she is super…jk probably Spiderman. It would be so fun to shoot webs to fly through cities.

Favorite animal?: Giraffes!

What is your dream job and why?: I would love to be a Disney Princess for a while. I would get to spend all day singing with kids in the happiest place on earth.

What is the favorite class you’ve taken at St. Olaf and why?: Anatomy and Physiology. The human body is insane with all these crazy processes that just happen automatically and labs are great!

Describe yourself in one word: Excitable

Call or text?: I prefer face-to-face, but if this isn’t an option, calling.

What is your ideal date?: Something fun and spontaneous, but with time to talk and get to know each other, like walks, a Twins game or an amusement park. 

Finish this sentence: A girl looks her best when… she is laughing and having fun!

Finish this sentence: A guy looks his best when… he is talking about something he really cares about or doing what he loves.

What do you want the ladies of St. Olaf to know?: Honestly, we are surrounded by awesome people here with so many different perspectives, interests, and passions. Go after what you care about and own it! You’ll truly make a difference!
