Hometown: Westminster, Colorado
Academic Year: Junior
Major: Biochemistry
Minor: Biology and Communication Studies

Things I am Involved in:

UNC Housing and Residential Education (as an RA), Bear Catholic, Pre-health Professional Club, and I hope to join the American Chemical Society =]

My Plan After College:

I have two choices: 10 Attend graduate school here at UNC for Biochemistry or 2) Attend medical school to become an Oncologist

Why I Chose UNC:

I had visited 4 college campuses before coming to visit UNC. None of them could even compare to the feeling I had when I got here. UNC is beautiful and made me feel right at home. The class sizes were small and better yet I could be far away from my parents! After the first week of school, I knew right away this was the best choice of my life. Period.

Advice To My Freshman Self:

Get out and have FFFFFUUUUUNNNNN!!! Join clubs, make friends everywhere you go, enjoy the campus, and explore every option you can! Don’t hesitate, just do it.

If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional, with whom would it be?

Hermione Granger so I can be ridiculously smart and cast spells everywhere!! EXPELLIARMUS!!!!

The Quote I Live By:

“The choices that you make, make the person that you become”

Favorite Movie:

All of the Meet the Robinsons and anything directed by Hayao Miyazaki (i.e. Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, etc.).
