Brief history about myself:
I graduated in December 2011 from the University of Kansas with a Bachelors in General Studies through the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Also received a minor through the School of Business.
While a student at KU, I devoted my spare time to student groups and volunteer work throughout the university community, City of Lawrence and the State of Kansas.
Completed an 8-week session with an AmeriCorps Summer *VISTA program through Harvesters Community Food Network located in Topeka, KS. Also devoted time to Just Food in Lawrence, KS to ensure I was experiencing more than one side of hunger issues in this region of Kansas.
Currently seeking an opportunity to return to KU and specialize in Psychoacoustic Engineering through the study of Music and Neuropsychology. I hope to change the world's appreciation for music by understanding the neurological significance it holds on human life.

Relay for Life
*Cooking and experimenting with food.
*Photography and other forms of art. Art is a passion, not just a hobby!
*Being creative, in general. People always compliment me on my choice/style of clothing.
*Keeping busy, unless otherwise distracted. Yeah, I cannot stand slacking off, for the most part.
*Exploring new ideas and concepts in life..
