Something you enjoy about Senate:
It's so great to be surrounded by people who are just as driven and ambitious as I am. Everyone is constantly working to better both themselves and the university and community. I've met some of my closest friends in Senate and the people really make the organization what it is.
Something you like to do outside of Senate:
I recently got into hiking! I've been going to lots of greenbelts around Austin and just taking some time to be alone with nature, as cliche as that sounds. It's so therapeutic.
Something not many people would know about you:
I visited Scotland once and I completely fell in love. Edinburgh is magical and I'd love to live there someday.
Favorite restaurant and dish to get there and why:
I love Katz's Deli in Houston!! It's a 24 hour diner near the River Oaks area and Museum District and it's honestly iconic. The pastrami sandwich- bomb. 10/10 recommend.
A tv/book/movie character like you and why:
Sometimes I'm so much like Leslie Knope from Parks and Rec that it's scary. I'm all about politics, civic engagement, feminism, and best friends (and waffles). I'm super driven just like she is, almost to a flaw sometimes, but my friends keep me from being a little too insane. We also both love Joe Biden more than average Americans.
