Q & A

Hometown and high school? Dallas, TX; Greenhill School

Favorite class? The Wisdom of Mistakes and Failures because it taught us that it’s ok to not succeed at everything because even the best fail sometimes. We also learned how to juggle!

Recommended professor? Marilee Schumann, this Art professor will challenge you not only to get better at Art, but to make your own meaning out of something you create.

Most memorable experience as a first-year student? Definitely getting to campus and realizing that even though a lot of my classmates knew each other because they live close, but that we were all in the same boat and we could all adjust to school together. You make friends for life during orientation.

If you could be a condiment, which one would you be and why? I would be barbecue sauce because that’s what we eat in Texas!

If you had a superpower, what would it be and why? I would fly so that I could get around faster. I love to travel so flying would come in handy during my excursions.
