I chose Penn State and the College of Agricultural Sciences because of the immense opportunities, connections, and hands-on experience the college has to offer.

Favorite Penn State Activity:
My favorite Penn State activity is spending time with friends in the Arboretum or eating Creamery ice cream!

What do you want to be when you grow up?
While I am not entirely sure what I want to be when I grow up, I would like to do something with field based research and/or traveling to work with wildlife. I would also be interested in teaching middle or high school students.

Proudest Achievement in life so far:
My proudest achievement in life so far is receiving two scholarships my senior year of high school to go towards college.

Hobbies:
I enjoy reading, cooking, and being outdoors. I love cuddling with my kittens and walking my dog. I am also passionate about playing the piano, especially for Wellspring Church in State College / The Well campus ministry. 

If you could be an animal, what would you be and why?
I would be a honey bee because they are hardworking; they get to see (and pollinate) many different flowers. I would also be quite proud of myself for being able to make honey for humans to enjoy. 

Dream Vacation Spot:
I hope to one day travel to Italy! I would love to eat real, authentic pizza.
