Why did you decide to come to the University of Nebraska–Lincoln?
I decided to come to UNL because of the academic and athletic resources, and the opportunities available to me. Nebraska stood out to me as a college because of the welcoming environment and the diversity on campus.
What is your favorite class you have taken so far and why?
My favorite class that I have taken so far is English 150 with Scott Guild. The professor made learning fun and interactive. He was a very personable professor and was genuinely interested in how you were doing in class and outside of class.
What are your plans post-graduation?
My plan post-graduation is to work in a zoo as a zoo keeper or in a wildlife sanctuary. I want to work with carnivores or African animals. I am hoping to obtain an international job working in wildlife conservation or at a rehabilitation facility.
What's life like outside school?
Life outside of school is filled with homework, athletics and having fun with friends. I love being in the outdoors, so oftentimes you will find me studying outside or going on a hike somewhere.
