What is the most memorable place you’ve been?

During the summer of 2016, I had the opportunity to intern with a senator in Dublin, Ireland. Dublin very relaxed and has some of the nicest people I have ever met. I love studying politics and the American government, so it was interesting to have the opportunity to work in a completely different government. I also enjoyed travelling  across the beautiful, green countryside.

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

I love to travel. I have been very blessed with opportunities to travel abroad over the years. Some of the places I’ve been include Dublin, Malta, Germany, the U.K., Uganda, and Italy. Some of my trips have been service trips while others are tourist trips. I feel service trips are the best way to experience different cultures and see life in other countries. If I could spend the rest of my life hopping around from country to country (and if money was not required), I would.
