Things I am Involved in:

Navigators, UNC intramural soccer, student teaching a group of awesome second graders at Winograd K-8 school, lifeguarding, teaching swimming lessons and spending time with family and friends!

My Plan After College:

I plan on being an elementary school teacher!

Why I Chose UNC:

UNC has the #1 Elementary Education program in the state of Colorado and the program is ranked nationally as well! I also love the fact that UNC is big enough to offer TONS of activities/ opportunities for students while still maintaining a friendly community feel. On a side note, the campus is beautiful, the residence halls are roomy and the food is delicious!

Advice To My Freshman Self:

Do every activity that is offered and meet as many new people as possible! Jump in with both feet!

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?

I would like to be Sophia Grace for a week. Specifically, the week she and Rosie had the shopping spree in Toys R US! (If you are not familiar with Sophia Grace and Rosie, look them up on YouTube).

The Quote I Live By:
