Favorite CK Memory: My favorite CK memory is attending CK Service Day freshman year. I decided to stay the entire night and I ended up getting to know some amazing people during that time. I remember the sun started rising as we were doing the final reflection to think about the service we had done and it was incredibly peaceful and rewarding. I think that was the moment that I knew I wanted to be really involved with the club.

I like: I love dogs, foxes, books, poetry, being out in nature, friends, family, looking at the stars, human rights, chai lattes, tattoos, lime green, blue, Lake Michigan, dark chocolate, carbs, and of course, Circle K!

Favorite CK MemoryDuring my freshman year I went to the Environmental Alternative Spring Break where we went to James River State Park in Virginia. I had the greatest time bonding with everyone on the trip, especially starting out driving a daycare bus at 5am. We did awesome service building and maintaining trails at the park and meeting some hilarious, charming, and kind park rangers (Bill, Bill, Bill, Bill). From our delicious homemade meals every night to scream singing songs on the trails to hunkering down in a cabin with no electricity, it's a trip I will never forget with some amazing Circle Kers.

I like: Drawing, bullet journaling, watching new Netflix shows, listening to Lorde, vines, seeing dogs on the Diag (especially Reggie), pretending I'm a runner, being out in nature, cookie dough, and Circle K!!
