Favorite Drake memory: Studying abroad in Barcelona, Spain, during my sophomore year was definitely the best memory of my Drake career! I had the opportunity to travel abroad with my best friend, Erin O’Boyle, who is another SJMC senior! Immersing myself in the culture, traveling to other countries, and of course trying new foods were the highlights. I would highly encourage any Drake student to study abroad!

One tip for Drake freshmen: Your mental health is just as important as your physical health! College can be busy and overwhelming, but it’s so, so important to take care of yourself.

Plans after graduation: I’m looking to do PR or Marketing in the fashion or travel/lifestyle industries.
