What was your favorite part about being a college student?
I loved learning and having the opportunity to gain insight into diverse perspectives – not only from the professors but from my classmates as well. I loved that my classes were often comprised of individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences. It made for great discussions and even some life-long friends!
What's the craziest thing on your bucket list?
I've always wanted to ride a camel in the desert, but I'd be content just to travel a lot as well.
What reality show would you want to appear in?
The Amazing Race.
Favorite Restaurant in Mankato?
Too many great and local places to choose just one, so I will break them down into categories:
- Coffee hag: Coffee/lunch date spot
- Nolabelle Kitchen: Brunch (but it is all good)
- Kato Tacos: Tacos and tamales
- Pub 500: Dinner and happy hour
The Best Thing About Minnesota State Mankato Is?
The opportunities! Not only through academics and campus life, but there is also the opportunity share in community with all different kinds of people from all over the world!
