Sophmore, Elementary Education Program, Alto for Rejoice, 1st year in PR.

Describe yourself in two sentences: I am an oldest child who spends most of my time making sure everyone around me is doing what they’re supposed to do, and that they’re okay. That about sums it up. 

What was your first job? I worked as a salad bar attendant at Dutch Haus, a restaurant near where I live.

Share some random facts about yourself: I’m 25% Irish. I really love eating pasta. If you don’t like pineapple on pizza, we can’t be friends.

What is a food you despise? Brussel sprouts.

What is your favorite coffee drink? Iced latte with lavender and vanilla.

If you could live anywhere, where would it be? Pensacola, Florida or Scottsdale, Arizona.

What is your most useless talent? I’m an expert at cram studying.

What is you biggest fear? Change scares me because it’s an unknown.

Would you rather wash the dishes, mow the lawn, clean the bathroom, or vacuum the house? Is none of the above an acceptable answer?

What is your nickname? I have a lot of nicknames, but my favorite one is “persnickety,” because I am persnickety.

Do you play any instruments? Yes, piano.

Have you ever taken voice lessons? Yes, 2 semesters.

What is your favorite part of PR? The way it forces me to grow, even though that growth can be uncomfortable.

Share a brief testimony: Growing up in Christian home, I knew what was right, but did not always follow the right path. I’m thankful for the day that Jesus saved me from the path of destruction I was walking. He set me free from the chains of sin that bound me, and gave me freedom and victory in Him. My desire is to continue drawing closer to Jesus and to become more and more like Him.
