Who do you look up to the most, and why?
My grandmother is the sweetest, gentlest and kindest person I know. She created a beautiful family, married her first boyfriend - my adoring grandfather, may he rest in peace - and has the ability to leave a positive impact on everyone she meets. I strive to have that same kind of impact on others.
What is your favorite thing about Hiram?
The size of Hiram. I love that classes are small, learning is intimate and that professors truly care about student success. You are appreciated and taken care of at Hiram. You make life-changing and long-lasting connections here.
