Reading, writing, and watching the St. Louis Cardinals! I also enjoy hanging out with my friends, hiking, and doing random athletic activities.

Why you came to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln:
On my official visit to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln I saw a large university with a small town feel. I loved how everyone was so friendly. Also, I was amazed at how everyone in the whole state was cheering for one team. In Illinos there are so many large colleges that everyone is cheering for someone different. Here, there is unity and I love it.

Favorite thing about being a CEHS Ambassador:
There are a lot of amazing things about being an Ambassador that I love. But, the top for me is getting to interact with prospective students. I love answering all their questions and getting to talk about how great UNL and the College of Education and Human Sciences are.

Advice to prospective students:
My advice to prospective is to get involved and allow yourself to be uncomfortable. You cannot grow staying in your comfort zone. College offers so many amazing opportunites to get involved with new things and meet new people, take advangtage.
