Hello, Hello!
  • I'm a semester away from graduating at NC State with degrees in Chemical Engineering and Paper Science Engineering.
  •  My Affordable Housing knowledge has grown exponentially since deciding to do Bike&Build.
  • I'm passionate about AH because I believe everyone should have a safe place to call home. I think targeting the A.H. crisis is a positve way to proactively work towards a better US.
  • I enjoy my birthday, post cards, scarves, naps, piggy back rides, latin america and being ridiculous more than most people I know.
  •  I really, really want glow-in-the-dark handlebar tape
  •  I try to live by the Circle K motto of Live to Serve, Love to Serve
  •  I don't particularly enjoy waking up early in the morning.
  •  I love scavenger hunts and surprises.
  • NCSU Habitat sponsors a Shack-a-Thon each year. Shack-a-Thon has student organizations build shacks from donated materials, live in them 24/7 for a week, while fundraising for Habitat. I participated with the Caldwell Fellows and previous shacks have included train cabooses, western saloon, jail and a wolf's head.
  • I also like to swim and play water polo. 
  • I may be addicted to mint gum and fruit smiles.
  • I love watching sunsets
  • I commute to class everyday on my bike. 
  • I once rode 80 miles on my bike. I did not know about bonking, proper food intake, or take into consideration that I had only ever ridden <20miles before this. It was one of my favorite days last summer.
  • My last profile kept changing font sizes and it drove me crazy. So I changed it from paragraph form to this.
  • I could not be more excited about this summer.
