5. If magic was real, what spell would you use first? I am one of the biggest Harry Potter nerds out there so of course I would love to do magic. I think I would cast a spell that would allow me to fly around on a broom because I think that would be quite an experience! Plus, who wouldn’t want to fly?! I would never have to pay for gas again!¬†

6. Your hands-down favorite place to eat in Duluth: Tavern on the Hill!

7. One thing you absolutely need to do before you die: THERE ARE SO MANY. Overall, I just want to make a difference in the lives of others. Whether that be holding a door open for someone, lending aid or advice where needed, or inspiring others to be the best that they can be and to reach their full potential.

8. What you wish you would’ve known when you began your first year at UMD? My little piece of advice would be not to limit yourself to what you think you know or what you think you like. You’re on your own now and you will grow and change. I joined an organization I never thought I would join in a million years and now it is such a huge part of my life and made me into the woman I am today.¬†
