I chose Penn State and the College of Agricultural Sciences because: of the amazing opportunities available to undergraduate students and the amazing Penn State community feel. The Pre-Veterinary program here at Penn State is also one of the best and immediately made me want to come to Penn State! 

Favorite Penn State Activity: 
My favorite Penn State activity would probably be eating Creamery Ice Cream! I also really enjoying hanging out with friends and going to football games. 

What do you want to be when you grow up?
When I grow up I would love to become a Small or Exotic Animal Veterinarian. Additionally, I hope to one day work in conservation and research. 

Proudest Achievement in life so far: 
I would say my proudest achievement in life so far would be getting into the Schreyer Honors College or getting my research published by the National Center for Biotechnology Informatics.

I really enjoy swimming, hiking, and reading in my free time. I also love to travel whenever I get the chance and go to concerts. 

If you could be an animal, what would you be and why?
If I could be any animal I would probably choose to be a sea turtle so I could travel on land and in water. I also just love sea turtles and find them very fascinating. 

Dream Vacation Spot:
My dream vacation spot has been Greece ever since I saw Mamma Mia and continues to be my top vacation dream!
