Hometown?
Saint Louis, MO
Things you have done while attending UE?
Participated in numerous theatre productions, been involved in National Make A Difference Day, participated in various intramural sports and attended other social and cultural events around campus.
Most impressionable experience since being at UE?
Harlaxton was without a doubt the most incredible and eye-opening experience I have had to date. Nothing can even come close to the experience of living in another country for 5 months and becoming part of that culture.
Favorite professor and why?
Diane Oliver. I took her Living World Religions class and was intrigued by the discussion that she initiated and in general the way she conducted the class. She was always open-minded about people's opinions, but never let the class wander too far off topic.
Favorite class and why?
Cultural Anthropology. Every single class I was learning something different. Dr. Berry was very interactive with the class. We could see a reflection of what we were learning in history and in our present lives. While the class was challenging, I walked away from it feeling incredibly well versed in human society as a whole.
Clubs and organizations in which you are active and which one means the most to you and why?
Women's Awareness is the only club of which I am a consistent member, and I love it. I have participated in many of the events they have done, such as the Vagina Monologues and I have learned a lot about not only the other women I go to school with, but myself as well. It is a very inviting and intelligent group of young women who want to make a difference.
What do you like best about the Honors Program?
All the opportunities it offers to students who want to take their academic endeavors to the next level. Whether it is a book discussion, an honors tea meeting or a guest lecturer, there is always something for the students to go to. It offers students a chance to broaden their depth of knowledge, especially in fields outside those of their specific study.
Goals after leaving UE?
Go back and work in the United Kingdom or Australia. Eventually I would like to move to New York City and stage manage professional theatre for a living, maybe do a Cirque Du Soleil show at some point.
