When not at camp: I'm a student at the University of Michigan where I want to study public policy. I'm also in a sorority and I participate in student government.

If you could live in another country where would it be and why? It would be Italy. I speak the language and I love the food. I think the culture and lengthy history is also super interesting. The countryside is so pretty too. I just went there with my mom right before camp. My favorite word in Italian is "Mangia!" meaning "eat!".

Pick three songs and create a playlist that describes your life. The playlist would be called Jamz to Love By. Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, Laugh Til I Cry by The Front Bottoms, and Sweet Creature by Harry Styles would be the three songs on the playlist. 

How has your time at CK changed over the past 10 years? I was a camper for 6 years and I always looked forward to coming to camp every summer because I've never been one to sit at home and do nothing. I've always loved trying new activities and as a camper I was able to do that. For example, I tried Siege Craft one time after never having tried it and it became one of my favorite activities as a camper. After being a camper I was a Team B Staff Assistant for 2 years, whcih was really fun because you get to be apart of all the behind the scenes action that goes into running camp. Then I edited the Sundial and that was really special because I got to have my own little part of CK history. Now, I'm gaining new perspective everyday from my campers and the other counselors.
