Why you chose your major

In the beginning, I was nervous to declare a major in mathematics because I believed the only career paths were education or sitting in a cubical in an office building, neither of which I wanted to do. After talking with some of the career coaches and advisors, I quickly realized my mistake. Aside from a wide range of career opportunities, I have always loved solving numeric problems and working with equations, which ultimately lead me to declare a major in Mathematics.

Favorite and/or most impactful course

My favorite course in college so far has been my University Honors Seminar, "Serial Killer Nation: Sex, Violence, and Trauma in Popular Culture". Not only was I able to grow as a writer through this course, but I got to learn about ruthless serial killers and their motives.

Research or internship experience

I have not yet had a research or internship experience.

Other involvement

I am involved in the University Honors Program, CAS Connectors, UNL Math Club, Alpha Lambda Delta Honors Society, Phi ETA Sigma Honors Society, and I am the Alpha Xi Delta New Member Orientation Director, and a Staff Member for Dance Marathon

Why you chose Nebraska

I decided to come to Nebraska because I am a fifth generation Husker. I have grown up supporting Husker athletics and immersed in the Husker culture. I have always wanted to be a part of this amazing university and leave my mark at UNL. I couldn't see myself anywhere else!
