Service Project: LeadMN

I was born and raised in Fergus Falls, MN. I went through the school system in Fergus and eventually went to the local community college, where I got involved in Student Senate and was elected President. Through this position, I was able to get involved with LeadMN, and I was elected President of the organization and served my term. Through my positions, I learned the importance of meeting individuals where they are at and I believe that this is the best way to make sure that everyone can have their seat at the table. By bridging divides and strengthening civic dialogue, we allow everyone to have a voice. Doing so creates a diverse and equitable foundation for a thriving community.


The Middle by Jimmy Eat World

I love this song and resonate with it because it shows the importance of not allowing others to dictate my decisions and how I feel about myself. There is a vast importance in trying new things, experiencing new experiences, and not writing yourself off when you make a mistake or fail. 


I love this and resonate with it because it shows the internal conflict you can have with yourself about how far you truly have come in life and all the mountains you've climbed to get to where you are now. It is always essential to self-reflect, but there is a way of doing so without being a hater to yourself.

Raphael's Final Act by Borislav Slavov

I absolutely love DnD and have been playing Baulders Gate 3 religiously. So this song is from my favorite boss battle in the game, and I think it absolutely sets the mood for how crazy this battle was!
