Favorite restaurant 
One of my longtime favorites is Carnaval Brazilian Grill in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. When my sister went to school in Sioux Falls, this was my family’s go-to spot!

Trip I'd like to take 
In the spring of 2016, I had the privilege of studying abroad in London for a semester, and it was the best experience of my life so far! I’ve seen quite a bit of Europe already, but I’d really like to go to Greece; Budapest, Hungary; and Lisbon, Portugal.

In my spare time 
There are many things I like to do. Here’s a short list: leading worship, home décor/design, film photography, travel and hiking.

On my playlist 
One of my older favorite music artists is Dashboard Confessional, and a newer group I’ve come across lately is Family and Friends. I like a huge array of music, and I love discovering new artists!

Look for me here 
The courtyard in the center of Van Peursem Hall is my favorite spot at Northwestern. It’s one of the most well-kept secrets on campus—and also one of its most beautiful and serene places.
