What is your favorite University of Iowa memory?

My favorite University of Iowa memory was coming back to school sophomore year and seeing everyone on campus for the first time. Since my freshmen year was almost all online because of COVID, it was amazing to see the campus come back to life. 

What would you like to see changed in the world during your lifetime?

In my lifetime, I want to see greater public action and legislation that protects our environment through measures that increase renewable energy and eliminate single-use plastics to ensure the longevity of our planet. 

What is your go-to karaoke song?

Goodbye Earl by The Chicks

What is your secret talent?

I can name all 99 counties in Iowa!

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In 10 years, I hope to be a high school social studies teacher, preferably teaching geography or history. I also hope to be a women's track and field coach at the school I'll be teaching at. While I don't know where I will end up, I will still proudly cheer on the Hawkeyes!
