Hometown: Midland, Michigan
Major/Minor/Institutes: Anthropology and International Studies major, Political Science minor, Ford concentration, member of Prentiss M. Brown Honors Program
Campus Organizations: Student Volunteer Bureau, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, Albion College Dance Team, Delta Gamma sorority
Why I chose Ford: The Ford Institute is a great way to get involved in not only the campus community but the Albion community as well. My love for assisting others and making a change in the world I live in was a large factor in choosing Ford. I also enjoy the idea of public service in politics that can shape other people's lives for the better.
Best part of being a Briton: Feeling as though you are part of one huge family. In every aspect of college life here, you always feel as though someone is behind you, supporting you. I always feel like I can count on someone, and I feel like I am needed and wanted here; that is not something you find in every college.
Post-graduation plans: After I graduate, I would like to take a year off and work for the Department of State in foreign affairs or for the Peace Corps. After that I would like to go to graduate school to further my education in international cultural studies and politics.
Favorite movie about my future career: Argo
Current issue/topic that is important to me: Currently, I am interested in the Middle East (specifically the Arab-Israeli conflict). As of now, I am trying to find programs to study abroad in Jordan and learn Arabic.
