I am a Junior Political Science Major here at UNC and I absolutely love it here. I have gotten involved at UNC with RHA, Navigators, and Intramural sports and it has made my experience ten times better with all the people I have met and friends I have made. I am a goofy, out-going, fun-loving person, you will always find me outside hiking, mountain biking, or even just throwing a Frisbee. I am super excited to meet all of you and show you why you should love UNC as much as I do.

I am a Sophomore Pre-Journalism Major with an emphasis in PR/Advertising here at UNC. I fell in love with the campus from day one and I wouldn't want to go to any other school than here. In my free time you might find me in my res. hall or at a Starbucks. I recently broke my clavicle and cracked my sternum so I will spend the majority of this summer in a fun figure-of-eight brace and a sling! I'm random and fun and I can't wait to meet each and every one of you and help you form as leaders!
