Favorite and/or most impactful course

My Modern I class, DANC 112, was the most impactful for me because it made me feel like I belonged on campus and that I was in the right place for me. My Faces of Tyranny class, 189H, was my favorite because I got to learn about tyranny throughout history and I got to write some of my first professional papers.

Other involvement

I am involved with Big Red Resilience Well-Being Coaches and I am in training to be one.

Why you chose Nebraska

I wanted to go out of state and I liked the way the political science major was set up. The major allows to add another major and multiple minors very easily. Also the campus was beautiful and Lincoln immediately felt like home to me.
