1-  How have you made McIntosh a better place, what was your contribution to campus? (sports, personal relationship, etc.)

When I moved here freshman year I joined the soccer team. I was on JV for three years and Varsity for one year. I decided not to play soccer my senior year because I wanted to spend time with my friends. I hope that I have made McIntosh a better place by giving people someone to talk to. I am very open about my opinions and beliefs and I am always here for anyone who wants to talk to me about anything. I hope that rising seniors can be open with their friends of all ages and accept everyone and try to help people no matter how difficult it seems.

2- How have you made the McIntosh Trail a better program, what was your contribution to the publication?

I joined the McIntosh Trail at the beginning of my second-semester senior year. Although I have not had much time on the Trail, I like to think that I have contributed to the ongoing discussion of mental health. I am not afraid to bring up my beliefs and what I stand for, and I think that shows during our pitch meetings and our table discussions.

3- What college do you plan on attending?

Arizona State University

4- What will you be studying?

Biological Sciences with an emphasis in Biomedical Sciences

5- If you have plans other than college, what are they?

None, I’m going to college.

6- What are some words of wisdom you have for returning staffers or newcomers to the Trail?

Don’t be afraid to speak your mind. You always have to stand your ground and that is especially important when writing articles about deeply emotional topics.
