Southern Illinois University is notorious for being one of the top party schools in the country. Unofficial Halloween and Polar Bear, anyone?! Yet it also boasts superior education programs like science research, for example – a program that initially drew Katherine Kamenjarin to the school.
Although the Miss COED 2017 semifinalist has since switched to English, the love she has for her school remains the same. The 20-year-old now has dreams of becoming a magazine editor and writing her own book. TBH, she’s well on her way because she’s already a published poet. Uhh, she can literally pour her heart out to us any day, amirite fellas?!
Get to know more about Katherine below, and be sure to check back daily as we get to know each of our semifinalists a bit better.
What’s your biggest accomplishment thus far?
My biggest accomplishment thus far would be getting published in a literary magazine for my poetry.
Who do you look up to most and why?
The person I look up to the most would be my mother. She works so hard and has accomplished so much with so little. Without a college degree, she makes over six figures and is everything and more that I hope to be one day.
If you could travel anywhere in the world for Spring Break, where would you go?
If I could go anywhere for spring break, it would easily be Fiji.
