Favorite Quote: “The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low, and we reach it.” – Michelangelo

What I like about BSU: I love the location of campus! BSU is located on Lake Bemidji, which is great. I love renting paddle boards from the Outdoor Program Center. Rollerblading on the trails surrounding parts of the lake is a fun hobby of mine. My family and I have camped at several camp sites in the surrounding Bemidji area, and we have a blast hiking at the state park.

Study Abroad: Through UND, I studied abroad for over 2 weeks in Malmo, Sweden, including time in Copenhagen Denmark.

I primarily work with students from areas and schools that serve a high population of Native American students. I work closely with the AIRC on student visits, scholarships and student clubs and organizations.
