about me

Hi! I am the youngest of three sisters and one of the few Minnesotans in the house. I love learning and connecting with people. After graduating high school, I took a gap year to study abroad in Accra, Ghana. When I’m not studying, you’ll find me drawing, painting, listening to music, or taking my dogs to Starbucks for a pup-cup. Although my major does not directly connect to agriculture, I appreciate Babcock House’s agricultural roots because I come from a family of dairy farmers and I raised chickens in 4-H while growing up. I am drawn to Babcock House because it is full of people who are more down-to-earth.
