Favorite College Experience: “My absolute favorite experience was studying abroad in Mexico. It is the most beautiful, vibrant country - the food, the people, the energy. I lived with a family who made me the most amazing meals and taught me so much about Mexican culture. "
Advice for High School and College Students: “Allow yourself to think creatively about what you want to do with your career. When I started college, I was on one set career path. After letting myself be open to other possibilities, I realized I could combine my passions and interests - graphic design, writing, serving people, and making the world a better place."
Favorite Food: “It's a tie between Indian and Mexican food!”
