I am so excited to serve as an SOA ambassador this year! I am a Junior Anthropology and Legal Studies Double Major. In addition to being an ambassador, I am a Resident Assistant with University Housing Services in Manchester Hall, so I see a lot of incoming students to the University. Becoming a resource and sharing knowledge is a big passion of mine. I enjoy working and getting to know many people throughout many departments. Presently, I hold a student assistant job in the Kinesiology and Recreation Department, where I learn and network outside of my majors. In my free time, I like to discover new restaurants in the area and research opportunities for myself and the people in my life. I am excited to branch out more and become more of a resource, so if you have any questions about the department, classes, and anything ISU and Bloomington Normal, do not hesitate to reach out!
