Major: English with a creative writing emphasis
Favorite thing about Albion and why: I absolutely love the sense of community we have here, it really makes it easy to get involved and feel a part of something. And Baldwin's omelettes, because they're delicious.
Something I know that that I wish I had known as a First Year: It's okay to feel lost. It's okay to not really know what you want to do with your life. But instead of wasting time worrying about how you're going to figure it out, go out there and figure it out - try new things, meet new people, take a new class. And when you find something you're excited about, pursue it. And don't, under any circumstances, let anyone discount that thing or tell you it's not worthwhile. Because if you're excited about something, it's valid, and it can lead to some of the best experiences you'll have and introduce you to some of the best people you'll meet. That's something I definitely wish I would have learned sooner. Oh, and you can never have enough easy mac in your room. Ever.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why: Some kind of super-strength memory recall. I feel like I'd be able to know and understand so much more about the world. And I'd be able to spend way less time studying for exams which would be so great.
