What is one of your proudest accomplishments?
My proudest accomplishment has been keeping a GPA of above 3.85 at Rhodes College. I developed a work ethic I didn’t know I had before attending college, and I was still able to balance school with extracurricular and social life.

What do you like to do for fun?
I absolutely love outdoor activities — hiking, biking, basically any activity that gets me outside and out into nature. I also like to keep an active lifestyle, so I like running and working out, but I also really enjoy video games and board games like Settlers of Catan and Risk.

Name a memorable place you’ve been.
Delphi, Greece. It’s a beautiful ancient Greek religious site on the side of Mount Parnassus, the second highest mountain in Greece. I hiked up to the top of the mountain for the sunrise and saw the ruins from above – it was an incredible experience and the most memorable moment during my study abroad, which was an important time in my personal development.
