A little about me is I am an avid reader, I can sit and read for days on end and be happy. I love nature and doing really anything outdoors. I love taking adventures and traveling and hope to visit the 7 wonders of the world one day. I love to bake, sing, craft, and play sports, especially Ultimate Frisbee! Most of all though I am very passionate about innovation and entrepreneurship and hope to own my own coffee shop one day, as well as various non for profits because I feel with any riches we recieve in this life, tangible or intangible, it is important to give back to those who need it most because society should be a better place for all of us to live. Not only this but if we are not using our minds and creations to better the world we will never feel fullfillment.
