Favorite CK MemoryOne of my favorite Circle K memories was Trick-or-Can my freshman year. I really enjoyed the nostalgia of dressing up in a costume and going trick-or-treating with friends while at the same time doing something good for the community. That project was one of a handful of Circle K experiences that really encouraged me to be active in Circle K.

I liketennis, chess, card games and board games, dogs, watching sports, IM sports, ice cream, new tech, sunshine

Favorite CK Memory: My favorite CK memory is the ASB trip I took to James River State Park in Virginia to help prepare for their busy spring/summer season. Working alongside a quirky park ranger (Bill! Bill! Bill! Bill!), we rehabilitated some of their trails by digging up roots with mattocks, raking leaves, and removing rocks in the path. Despite being exhausted at the end of every day, this trip is definitely one of my most memorable experiences. From singing during the entire 10 hour bus ride to an evening wagon ride/ owl spotting expedition to staying in a cabin with 12 other people during a power outage, this trip was a blast and I wouldn't have wanted to spend my spring break anywhere else.

I like: Traveling, hiking, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, A Series of Unfortunate Events, playing violin, sleeping, Reggie the campus corgi, ice cream, Lorde, Twenty One Pilots, Coldplay, coffee, boba (they're not called bubbles ... GET IT RIGHT), rice, udon, mochi, sushi, being with family, service, and of course, Circle K!

Favorite CK MemoryBoth ASB trips I’ve gone on have been absolutely wonderful! Freshman year we went to New Orleans and repaired homes in the Lower Ninth ward, which was hit the hardest by Hurricane Katrina. Sophomore year we were classroom aids at Jane A. Neil Elementary in Chicago. I came away from each trip with a new understanding of social justice and community, some lifelong friends and a boatload of great memories :)
I likeFresh snow, R&B, yoga, my cat & dog <3, vine compilations, watercolor, Mediterranean food, Parks & Rec, baking, pistachio ice cream & Circle K (of course!)
