Why do you love Trinity?
I love Trinity because whenever I’m on campus, I feel like I am home.

What does life outside of Trinity look like for you?
I love to travel whenever I get the chance. I have been to 14 countries, and I hope to get to many more! My husband and I also love relaxing at home while watching the Food Network or Netflix.

What is your favorite part of Chicago?
I love walking around Chicago and finding a coffee shop to sit at and people watch.

Were you a student at Trinity?
I graduated from Trinity in 2017 with a degree in Social Work. I was also a member of the volleyball team, so I spent a lot of time at the gym. When I was not playing volleyball, you could find me watching my fellow athletes play.
