What is your major? If undecided, what field(s) are you considering? – Undecided. Considering Psychology, English, and History.

What are your career and educational goals? – To grow not only as a student but a well-rounded person. As well as find a successful job I enjoy.

What are you most looking forward to about coming to CNU? – I am most looking forward to meeting new people and furthering my education.

Please list the top three service areas or populations you are interested in working with as a Bonner. – Environment & Animals, Hunger & Housing, and Support Services

What are you most looking forward to about being a Bonner? – The program’s opportunities for personal and social growth through community engagement.

What past service experience has impacted you the most? – The most significant service experience I have undertaken was being a residential advisor in the dorm of my boarding school. While at times the role was that of a glorified upperclassman, my involvement grew my understanding of what it is to be a mentor. This opportunity has shown me glimpses of what being a leader in the community requires and consists of.

What are your hobbies and/or interests outside of academics and Bonner? – Reading, writing, games, listening to music, and spending time with friends.

List your favorite book, movie, musician/band, food, and/or quote. – I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. -Michael Jordan (I mistakenly forgot to credit Michael Jordan once when saying this on stage, ever since then I’ve held it as a personal mantra).

If you were a comfort food, what would you be? – French Fries

Share a little known fact about yourself. – I once sang at Carnegie Hall, it was pre puberty, so please don’t ask me to sing.
