I really enjoy being a person! That might sound quite silly, but I am so grateful for the opportunity to be an embodied being and to be alive. I love to learn and understand the world to the best of my ability. In my free time I enjoy exercise, the outdoors, reading, spending time with loved ones, and doing my best to make my room like an eclectic wizard lives there.

What's one item on your bucket list?

Visiting Satre and Simone de Beavouir's joint grave in France.

What is something you wish everyone knew about your major/field of study?

That it's actually very interesting, and more accessible than people often think haha

All modesty aside, what are you better at than 90% of people?

I'm pretty good at Dark Souls games, haha

Why did you decide to join the Honors Program?

The support! Being provided a support system that encourages research and helps get it published is so wonderful.

What has been your favorite Honors experience?

The Professors I've been able to meet and learn from! Both the classes and events have provided me with opportunities to learn from Professors outside of my majors. It's really allowed me to learn outside my expertise and expand my knowledge!

What is your next step in Honors?

Hopefully putting together some more solid ideas for my thesis.
