Advice for Boilermakers

Talking to new people can be nerve-wracking, but most people, even the ones who seem confident, are just as nervous as you. Taking the first step to speak with someone can give them the courage to do the same. The more you do it, the easier it becomes, so challenge yourself!

Fun Facts About Me

  • I have a major sweet tooth.
  • I adore stuffed animals; the more huggable, the better.
  • I love animals, especially cats and corgis, but if dragons were real, they would be my favorite.
  • I could spend all day in a candle store ... or at least until my sense of smell stops.
