Favorite Drake memory: late night trips to the c-store with my roommates to buy ice cream and Clif bars, running with my teammates, and sneaking into Inman’s office with Emily to steal cookies off his desk (but don’t tell him!)

One tip for Drake freshmen: It’s okay to mess up! Don’t expect classes, making friends, extracurriculars to be easy right away. Try new things, don’t be afraid of failure–this is your chance to really figure out who you are and what you want to do with your life! Things will come together in time.

Plans after graduation: I’m looking forward to working for a lifestyle or running magazine after graduation, whether it’s here in the Midwest or on the East Coast!
