What inspired you to come to ENVD when choosing your school?
I was looking for a major where I could still be creative and learn new hands-on skills. I also did not like taking exams and memorizing vocabulary, so my friend recommended ENVD to me.

What is one of the greatest experiences or lessons from your time at CU Boulder that you'll carry with you into the next chapter of your life?
My study abroad program in Berlin was one of the greatest experiences for me. I learned how to actually be independent and be completely on my own. At the end of the day, the only person that will be with you throughout your entire life is yourself.

Describe one of your favorite memories.
During my freshmen year, my friends and I were on Farrand Field and there was a circus happening.
