Major: Public Relations and Politics

Hometown: Morton, IL

Favorite Drake Memory: Volunteering for the DNC when Drake hosted the Democratic Debate in February

One tip for Drake freshmen: College is a great opportunity to grow and change as a person. Get out of your comfort zone and try new things, you aren’t locked in to doing anything. Also, go to class.

Plans after graduation: Doing PR/Communications work for an advocacy organization. I’m also going to try to do some of the things I missed out on this semester, like taking a trip to Austin and coming back to celebrate Drake Relays!

Anything else we should share about you: I came into college unsure about my about my majors, unsure if I would make friends, and unsure if I would find a home here. With graduation just around the corner, I can happily report that none of those fears came to fruition. I’m incredibly grateful for the bonds I formed during my time here and to my friends and family for supporting me along the way. Thanks for an incredible (almost) four years everyone!
