What she hopes to accomplish with ASWC this year: I really just want to adequately serve the students I represent during my time in ASWC. For me, that means bringing up issues that students have voiced to me and balancing my own opinion, the opinion of other juniors and what I think will be best for the students and school when voting on issues in ASWC.

The last book she read for fun: Inferno by Dan Brown

Her guilty pleasure: I would live off Goldfish if I could. I love them and I have to stop myself from buying them every time I’m at the store or I’m pretty sure I would turn orange.
