I chose Penn State and the College of Ag Sciences because of the family atmosphere I felt when I visited campus. I could automatically feel that everyone was there to support me to be the best I could be, which I really appreciated. I also liked that I would be able to get to know my professors personally.

Favorite Penn State Activity:
I am involved in Club Water Polo, which has become my family at Penn State. I absolutely love the experiences I have had with my team at practices and tournaments, as well as our involvement in THON!

What do you want to be when you grow up?
When I grow up, I want to be a water quality researcher for the federal government.

Proudest Achievement in life so far:
I was selected as a NOAA Holling's Scholar my sophomore year, which was really exciting and made me really proud!

Water Polo, Cooking, Singing, Being Crafty

If you could be an animal, what would you be and why?
I would be a dolphin- they are super smart and just seem to have a lot of fun. I also think it would be really cool to be able to be underwater for a really long time.

Dream Vacation:
Athens, Greece
