What does graduating from Nebraska mean to you? 
To me it means commitment and maybe a bit too many long nights, but in the end everything I’ve done and learned at the U of N has bettered me as an individual and allowed me to grow in ways I never thought I could and for that I am grateful!

What are your plans after graduation?
I’ve been interning at a local multimedia design studio called Pixel Bakery, and they actually just asked me if I wanted to go part time (leading into full time). I’m extremely excited to take on this position!! I absolutely love the people I work with, the city I live and the career that I am in! 
After graduation, I am most looking forward to diving right in. Having the ability to be part time at a place I love also allows me to work on things that I’ve been pushing off. I want to create! I want to sell things! I want to own a business!

What's the best thing about being a Husker?
The best thing about being a Husker is being connected to so many amazing people and opportunities!

Who would you like to thank for supporting you throughout your college career?
Mom and Pa! You’ve seen me go through it over the past 4.5 years. Thank you for putting up with me and for teaching me how to work hard from a young age. I would be where I am or be so devoted to what I love if it wasn’t for you guys providing me with such an amazing opportunity! Love you always!
