I will be a senior at Moravian College. I’m very involved here on campus; I am a Resident Adviser, an athlete, and a member of two honor societies. I have been an RA for just one year, but have had lots of experience in resident halls. Next year, I will be the Senior Resident Adviser of Rau-Hassler Hall. I play basketball for the Lady Greyhounds. I am the vice president of both Kappa Delta Pi and Phi Alpha Theta, respectfully the education and history national honor societies.
I take academics really serious. I understand that it is why I am here at school and I make it my top priority. I have been on dean’s list for every semester that I have been here. My passion for learning drives my passion for teaching. I see teaching a as way to continuously learn, not only about yourself but about the world. This is one of my top reasons for becoming a teacher.
I am an assistant basketball coach at my high school. Even though I can not make it back for a lot of the games, I put in a lot of work in the off-season and over winter break. I love working with the team to make them better. I especially enjoy when they come to me to ask questions; since I played, they feel very comfortable asking me questions about the game.
In my free time, I really enjoy working out, being outside, and reading. I recently found enjoyment going on hikes. I like seeing new places and this is my opportunity to do that; I like finding environments that are calming. I also really enjoy reading; I like to curl up with a book on a cloudy day and really enjoy it. Being an athlete, working out is a top priority and I think it is important in maintaining a healthy life.
I am also a family person. I love being with my family. At school, that is hard, but I make every effort to talk to them or even go home for a day on the weekends. Since I live close to Moravian, it is possible to go home for an afternoon to enjoy my family. I also have two cats that I love! Pumpkin and Peanut were my first pets, as a junior in high school, and I couldn’t imagine nothing having them.
Lastly, I really
enjoy spending time with friends. You will usually find me
somewhere on campus, or off-campus, with my boyfriend
Logan. We have been dating for four years and he is my
best friend. I also enjoy spending time with my team; they
are always fun to be around!
