Background before UWFox

I attended Appleton West High School/Renaissance School for The Arts and graduated in 2012. I worked as a waitress and hostess at “Taste of Thai” for about two years during high school. Now, in college, I work in the Barlow Planetarium at UWFox as student helper and box office representative. I’ve never really done any interesting travels, but two summers ago I joined a drama troop called “Zero Tolerance” and through that I was able to accomplish many things and see things in new ways. 

Why did you choose UWFox?

To be honest, UWFox was just a last option college that I came to, but I am very glad I came here. I am able to accomplish so many things because I came to this campus.

Have you chosen a major?

I am currently declared as Biology major at UWFox, but I also want to go into the medical field. Now I am wavering between Pre-Med or Fashion Merchandising.

What are you learning that you find interesting and rewarding at UWFox?

I am learning that the more connections you have the more possibilities you get.

What are your career plans after UWFox?

My plans are to transfer after this spring semester and continue on with college either at UW-Madison or University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. After that I am hoping to continue on to FIDM Fashion Institute located in Los Angeles, CA.

Other interesting things about yourself that you’d like to share?

I love fashion and I enjoy styling people and taking pictures. I also like to play tennis during my free time.
