Indianapolis, Indiana

I'm 24 years old and grew up in Hammond, IN. I attended college at Manchester University in North Manchester, IN where I graduated in May 2013 with a degree in English writing.

Don't let my field of study fool you, I didn't just read and write about books. I engaged in intelligent conversation where we learned to analyze different aspects and bring situations from the 16th century and compare them to current events. Most importantly, I learned how to listen and accept different views.

I love the idea of helping others and making people feel welcomed. This is apparent through the jobs I held on campus where I welcomed new students to campus or showed prosective students around. I also interned for Make-A-Wish where I discovered my passion for helping others in need. In my ideal world I would travel around the country educating middle, high school, and college age students about sexual assult and rape with the intention to end rape and rape culture.
