Interests

My absolute favorite thing to do is going on drives. It’s a great way for me to relieve stress and have a little me time! Bellingham is such a beautiful place, so there are always stunning views wherever the road takes me. I also really enjoy painting, baking, personality tests (specifically the enneagram) and I love rollercoasters! On campus I’m involved in Alpha Kappa Psi, which is a professional development club.

What I like most about Bellingham

Bellingham has a little bit of everything! From mountains to beautiful bodies of water, there are so many things to do and always something new to experience. I also really love that Downtown Bellingham emphasizes local businesses to help support those in our community, and it makes this town all the more unique!

My advice for incoming or prospective students

My advice to incoming students is something I’m sure everyone has heard so many times before, but I think it’s SO important to remember, which is to put time into the things you’re passionate about and make you happy. We can get caught up and bogged down with our day-to-day schedules, homework, and classes, that we frequently forget about ourselves. It’s crucial to take the time to focus on the things that bring you joy and make them a priority. You’re living your life for you, so make sure to put your needs first!
