My motivation

My motivation is my family! My family has a huge impact on my life and I want to make them proud. I want to succeed in life and live it to the fullest with them by my side. Their unconditional love and support has motivated me to accomplish all of my goals thus far. 

My latest accomplishments

My latest accomplishment was being accepted as a President's Student Ambassador. Through this I am able to connect with alumni and work closely with the Kalamazoo College president and staff. Additionally, this past semester I completed the credits necessary to fulfill both my major and minor requirements. 

Next big goal

My next big goal is, of course, to graduate!!! But after that I would love to travel and explore Europe and take in all the beautiful culture that thrives there.

Why is choosing your own path important?

Choosing your own path is important as it defines you as a person. You are in charge of your life, and can decide to change everything in an instant if you wanted, that is amazing to think about. I can't wait to see where my path leads me!

Favorite place on campus

My favorite place on campus would have to be the Quad; it's a beautiful place during any season!
