Something you enjoy about Senate:
It sounds cliche, but I love the people in Senate! Meeting people from such diverse majors and backgrounds is an experience you don't necessarily get through other organizations. Also, I see the work we do affect this campus - it's incredibly tangible and that knowledge is incredibly rewarding.
Something you like to do outside of Senate:
I recently became a puppy raiser for Texas Service Dogs, a non-profit that places highly trained service dogs with their partners for free. Raising a service dog takes ten to fifteen thousand dollars, so am I happy to be able to help out with such a good cause.
One of your many talents:
I consider myself a decently talented skier (on real mountains, you Texas hooligans), but I also fractured a vertebra doing that so I don't know if it's considered a talent¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Favorite book or tv show:
I just finished watching Parks and Rec, so that has to be my current favorite. I relate to Ron Swanson on a spiritual level.
Any last random thoughts? I love you guys <3
Words from the Co-Chairs:
"Not only was Krista a valued member of AIC last year and brings incredible insight this year, Krista is also a dedicated and fun individual. She helped out with Senate orientation in the summer and demonstrated initiative by offering to clean the tablecloth for Senate." -Bianca & Seth
