What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
Reading during school breaks, hanging out with friends when the weekend rolls around, watching movies with my roommates, and napping.


Best thing about being a CEHS Ambassador:
Making new friends during a huge transition in my life while also developing the skills needed to interact with the public on a professional level.


Why did you choose to be a CEHS Ambassador?
I wanted to stay involved with my school while experiencing a new way to stay involved and interacting with a different student population.


Why did you choose to attend the University of Nebraska-Lincoln? 
I grew up on the West Coast, and sadly I have not been able to travel too much outside of that region, with the exception of a brief visit to the East Coast.  My goal was to attend University in a new part of the United States, and the University of Nebraska- Lincoln felt the most like home. 


If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?
Definitely a Pegasus; you get all the benefits of being a majestic horse while having the ability to fly.


Advice to Prospective Students:
Take 3 deep breaths and just breathe! Applying to colleges is stressful, but its only a momentary blimp in your life. It is over before you know it.

To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift. Steve Prefontaine
