Hobbies and Interests

I’m a humanities girl at heart. Whether it’s literature, music, art or theater and dance – I love it all!

What Brought Me to the HC

From the beginning, I was looking for a college that consisted of bright students who had a thirst for learning. After looking at a bunch of small, private schools, I realized that the Honors College had exactly what I wanted out of those institutions— plus more. I wanted an intellectual community, and I found it here at the Honors College. The opportunities here are so amazing! I found a place where I could be both academically involved and enriched.

A Little About Myself

I love kayaking and being in the outdoors. If I could travel anywhere, I would go back to England, where I studied abroad, or to Japan. I love animals, and I have two cats and wish I could adopt a dog. I love playing and listening to music. I’ve played the violin since I was six years old and it always helps to play a piece or two to de-stress.
