University of Kansas, Freshman

I love my college because…

the environment here in Lawrence is like none other; I felt it the first time I visited and I still feel it every day. LFK is definitely a gem in itself. KU also just got a brand new business building that opened up this year and it’s absolutely amazing. I’m so lucky to be able to spend the next four years here; I’m definitely in love with the school and the city. Our campus is gorgeous and is in such a great location. The school pride toward KU is wide and strong – every student is happy to be here and the whole town has love for this amazing school. The students at this school are from all over the world with so many different stories and experiences. It’s incredible to be surrounded by so many genuine people. Oh yeah, and we can’t forget about KU basketball. Rock Chalk!!!!

I really hate when…

people drive under the speed limit.

I major in…

Marketing with a minor in Finance. The goal right now is to become a marketing manager and to find ways to appeal to people of all backgrounds. Ultimately when the money starts flowing in, I want to start charities that will help put people through school around the world that wouldn’t be able to otherwise. I’m a strong believer that education is a right and everyone is entitled to it.

My hometown is awesome because…

I was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas. Wichita is filled with so many talented and amazing people who are also really sweet. Plus Freddy’s Frozen Custard started in Wichita, so that’s pretty cool.

At school, you can find me…

in Chi Omega this year (go hooties), and I’m loving every second of it! I’m also a student in the business school here at KU.

My ideal first date would be…

definitely something chill. Probably getting some food and just talking and getting to know each other. And hopefully a lot of laughing!

My favorite late night study snack is…

puppy chow.

If I had 24 hours left to live, I would…

just want to be with my family and close friends, preferably on a lake and preferably with Chipotle.

If I could change one thing about the world, it would be…

all the hatred in the world. There’s so much negativity and bad things surrounding us, most of it stemming from┬áhatred and ignorance. It’s heartbreaking. I’d want to make the world a place where everyone can thrive and be safe and be treated equally.

If I could give my younger self one piece of advice, I would say…

stop online shopping and save some money for the love of God.

I’m going to be Miss COED 2017 because…

it would be a great opportunity to represent KU and to really showcase how amazing this school is.
