Advice for Future Boilermaker:

College is what you make it! Take this time to learn about yourself and others through the numerous opportunities available to you at Purdue! Join an organization, become a student leader, sign-up for a mentor, spend a semester studying abroad! The list goes on. Don’t be afraid of a new adventure or experience- embrace it and own it.


Fun Facts:

I moved from Chicagoland- l am a huge (bandwagon) fan of the Bulls, Cubs, Blackhawks and Bears. J I could probably rap all of the Hamilton musical to you, and try to insert Hamilton quotes into my daily life as often as possible.  I LOVE all thing above- flying kites, playing with bubbles, cloud watching, stargazing, hot air balloons, researching facts about space and so on.  Binge watching shows is my specialty, favorites include: The Office, Friends, New Girl & the Bachelor franchise. I like to think I have the wanderlust gene. I love to explore and discover new places, cultures and meet people.  My goal is to get to all 7 continents and all 50 U.S states (currently at 10 countries, 4 continents, and 11 U.S states).
