Educational Background (School/Degree/Specialized Training): I am a secondary social sciences major at the University of Nebraska Lincoln. I will be starting my sophomore year in this program during the upcoming Fall semester.

Years with Spark: 1

Favorite thing about kids: I love being surrounded by kids because I believe we have so much to learn from them. I am always amazed by the new and fun perspectives they are able to bring to the table, no matter what the discussion is. Every child has had a different experience in the world so far and I think hearing what they each have to share is exciting and enlightening.

Favorite thing about STEAM: I am very passionate about the art side of STEAM programs. Art has always been a huge part of who I am and how I choose to express myself. I am so excited to help kids this summer develop and channel their creative sides!

Best summer memory/experience in 180 characters or less: Traveling to Italy and Australia throughout the last few summers. Being submersed in a different country's history, beauty, and culture has been a very impactful part of my life.

Favorite food: Mashed Potatoes and Gravy

If found $100 you had left in an old coat of yours, what would you spend it on and why? If I found $100 in an old coat of mine I would take my friends out to dinner at a restaurant we all love. I consider myself a bit of a food guru so a great meal with friends sounds like a perfect day! I definitely wouldn't forget dessert either.
