What did you do before you were a Miner?
I was a student at Bethel University studying International Business and Marketing. I also studied abroad in Seoul, South Korea in the spring semester of my junior year. It was an amazing experience, and I made some really great friends along the way!
If you could be anywhere right now, where would it be?
I would probably go back to Korea or Japan because the weather in the spring is the best! It’s warmer, and the cherry blossoms are starting to bloom. My favorite part of spring in Korea was seeing all the pretty flowers and cherry blossoms everywhere I went.
What are three things people don’t know about you?
+ My travel goal is to go to at least one new state or country every year.

+ I taught myself how to play the ukulele when I was in middle school!
What do you do for fun?
I like to do anything creative such as painting, drawing, photography and trying new things! I also enjoy hiking, bouldering, playing tennis, watching shows and movies and occasionally listening to podcasts or music.
