I was born and raised in the great sunflower state of Kansas. As a junior in rural Louisburg, I stay active in debate, select choir, Scholar’s Bowl, and also as director of the Leo Club, secretary of the Spanish Club and percussion section leader of our marching band. I am passionate about my community service activities. Though I do not have room in my course schedule for art classes, one of my paintings hung in the Kansas State Capitol for a special exhibition!
