Best part of living in the Valley City area
The small-town atmosphere! Some people may be turned off by that notion, but I love it — everyone knows everyone, and it’s really not that far from Fargo or Jamestown, which makes for fun little trips on the weekend or spur-of-the-moment Wednesday afternoon adventures.
How you ended up at VCSU
After I came to campus for a vocal music competition during my freshman year of high school, I told my mom I was going to attend VCSU because of how beautiful the campus was. I remember thinking how awesome Valley was, but I don’t remember ever saying it. She reminded me of this when she and my dad were moving me in during Welcome Weekend. Crazy how I fell in love with this place from the first time I set foot on campus!
I’m a mom of 14 various cacti and succulents of which I also have a possibly serious obsession. I also spend way too much money on craft supplies!
Goals after college
Start teaching young minds! I hope to get a position as an ELL teacher.

If you could have a conversation with anyone (dead or alive) who would it be?
Ellen DeGeneres of course! She’s hilarious, generous, kind and most importantly genuine. I aspire to be as amazing as her.
