My greatest fear is sharks … literally all and any size. I have always has this irrational fear of jumping in a body of water and a shark eating me. I thank “Jaws” and my mom for letting me watch it when I was 7 for this fear.
What trait do you like least about yourself?
I can sometimes put too much on my plate, and I can get really overwhelmed and hard on myself easily. I love getting as involved as possible, but fail to remember to make some “me time” in the process so I don’t completely lose my mind.
Which historical figure do you most identify with?
She may not be exactly considered a historical figure, but I really admire Emma Watson.

I have always looked up to her and definitely identify closely to her beliefs and morals.
Who is someone you’ve met at Indiana State you’ll remember the rest of your life?
I will always remember my big sister in the sorority I was a part of, Kaleigh Decker. She has known me since literally my first day on campus and has been there for every up and down of my life over the past three years. She has seen me grow into the woman I am now and has helped shaped so much of it. I’m extremely sad she is graduated this spring, but can’t thank her enough for all of the memories we have and how big of an impact she has made in my life.
Which talent would you most like to have?
I would LOVE to be able to play basketball really well and dunk the ball. I’m 5’2”, so I can’t really do that with what I’m working with … but I really wish I could!
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
My greatest achievement is by far becoming a Christian this past December. I was in a very hard and troublesome point in my life and had contemplated leaving school, my friends and just giving up. But Christ came into my life at the perfect moment, and I was shown His love and have been completely changed by that over the last four months. I have gained so much more genuine happiness through Christ and my relationship with Him and fellow believers, and I am so proud of myself for standing firm in my faith over the last few months and continuing to grow in a relationship with Him.
If you were to die and come back as a person or thing, what do you think it would be?
I would 10,473,922% come back as a dog. If you know me, you know how obsessed with them I am and how badly I want one. And if I can’t have one … why not come back as one?!
What do people notice first about you?
I think people notice how goofy and smiley I am. I always go out of my way to be approachable to others, especially if I don’t know them. Also, people definitely always notice how short I am and never let me forget it.
What does BLUE mean to you?
To me, BLUE means individuality. The opportunity to try new things, fail and succeed at them and find yourself in the process. As I’m approaching my last year of college, I look back on how much I have grown since I first moved into to Blumberg Hall (pre-awesome renovations) my freshman year. Without the people, professors, jobs, organizations and opportunities State offers, I would not be the person I am today. I thank God for giving me the opportunity to come to State and become that person.
