What do you like to do for fun?

I love to hang out with friends, go on hikes with my dogs, and go thrifting with my significant other. 

 

What was your most meaningful service experience or extracurricular activity in college and why?

My favorite service experience is when my sorority would go and volunteer at a local women’s and children’s shelter. We would go twice a month and sometimes help around the shelter or collect and bring in necessary items for the women and children and other times we would go in and just hang out with the women and do crafts with the children. Domestic violence is a huge issue in this country and meeting survivors of DV was very inspirational and grounding. 

 

Name and describe a memorable place you’ve been. 

Two summers ago I went to Tybee Island and Savannah, Georgia with my significant other. Savannah is a really cool and interesting city and Tybee Island was just a really relaxing and great place to get away to.
