What are you most excited about for summer?

Moving into my first apartment and going on a lot of hikes along the beach.

What is your dream job?

I've always wanted to be a singer! But in a more realistic view, I want to become a blogger/YouTuber. I really want to make a difference in peoples' lives and be someone they can look up to. I feel like exerting myself on social media will do just that.

What are some of your hobbies?

I love music, so I am always singing and playing my guitar, but I also like writing, photography, and film making.

What did you think of your first year of college?

My first year has come and gone so fast. I really thought it would be so hard and scary - but it really was quite the opposite! I was able to make some amazing friends and get involved into some amazing organizations (like Her Campus!).

What is your favorite thing about UW-Milwaukee?

My hands down favorite thing about UWM is that there is a coffee shop literally everywhere - no, but in all seriousness it's the atmosphere and the kind people.

How has being in college changed you or the way you think?

College has already molded me into a much wiser and kinder person. I never thought that coming to college would help stabilize me, but it has in so many ways. I was able to get much closer to God, meet some fabulous people, and express myself in ways I never thought. And that's just in the first year! I can't wait to see the positive change that comes within the next three!
