LT Position: Internal Director
Something you have been working on as Internal Director:
This is the first year that Senate has put on Senate Week. It's the combination of all of the week-long events we had in the past, jam-packed into one massive week of tabling and evening events! As Internal Director, I got to oversee the two events. The chairs planned the actual events of the days, but I signed off on everything and did all sorts of administrative work to ensure it was a success, which it was!
Something that you are involved in outside of Senate:
This past year, I began to work with USBands as a member of their events staff team in Texas. I helped run four marching competitions in the fall. I had some of the longest, most tiring days working, but it was so much fun. Some people are ready for Fall 2017 because of Longhorn football, but I'm ready for marching season!
Favorite thing about Senate:
My favorite thing about Senate is the people that I have gotten to know because of the organization. This includes both the friends I have made inside the organization and the connections and people I've gotten to know outside of the org because of Senate. I have made several long term relationships and my roommates actually both serve on the executive board with me!
It's a tie between The Help and It's Complicated. Emma Stone, Meryl Streep, and Viola Davis are way perfect. I can literally watch the movies over and over again!!!!
Favorite piece of music:
Symphony No. 1 in D Major by Gustav Mahler - listen to this!!! You'll smile, you'll cry, you'll feel good. It's such a gorgeous piece of music.
One thing you can’t live without:
Burt's Bees! I started using it when I began to learn tuba and I haven't stopped since.
