What Are You Most Looking Forward to This Term?: I'm looking forward to addressing ways to improve the University's sustainability measures and focusing on student concerns all around campus.

Why Did You Join USG?: I joined USG because I saw it as an opportunity to speak up on behalf of all the students at the University of Iowa. I know how much the university administration and campus partners listen to USG, and I thought it was amazing that students are able to effect so much change at their school., so I just had to get involved. I applied for the City Liaison position because I am very interested in government and how it affects students. I wanted to advocate for students' rights and issues and elevate their voices in the community and city government.

Additional Information: Outside of USG, I enjoy listening to podcasts, working out, fishing, binging Netflix, and hanging out with friends, family, and my dog!
