I come from a single parent household and was raised by my grandma. Additionally, I am a first generation college student in my family. From 2012 to 2015 I attended Muscatine Community College. Upon receiving my Associate of Science and Associate of Art degrees from Muscatine Community College, I decided to pursue my Bachelor's of Liberal Studies at the University of Iowa in the Fall of 2016. My areas of study include Sustainability and Wind Energy. Upon receiving my bachelors degree, I would like to continue on at the University of Iowa to receive my master's degree in Geographical and Sustainability Sciences along with a second master's degree in Earth and Environmental Sciences. I am currently involved with HonorSociety.org, Golden Key International Honour Society, Phi Theta Kappa, and Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. My favorite quote by Tim Ferriss - "The goal is not to simply eliminate the bad, which does nothing more than leave you with a vacuum, but to pursue and experience the best in the world."
