1. Where are you from?
I am from Loveland Colorado.
2. What is important to know about you?
I am from a large family and love the chance to know a variety of different people from all walks of life.
3. Describe yourself in 3 words.
Passionate, Creative, Compassionate
4. What did you study? And why did you choose that major?
Double Major in Anthropology and Global Marginalized Populations. I choose these majors because of my deep desire to help people around the world to better understand one another and work with each other to achieve peace and happiness.
5. What is social justice to you?
Social justice for me is the never ending battle to hear even the faintest of voices in a world full of loud people and demanding justice for those who are overlooked.
6. Why did you want to join the MAN team?
I am anxious to be a part of this endeavor to help promote the mission of social justice, to learn about working in a non-profit, to build my experience and resume, and to connect myself and MAN with other organizations that are looking to end social injustices.
7. Why is media important?
Media is important because it is never static and it allows opinions and theories from anyone to become ‘news’ in a heartbeat.  It also is a mechanism for change and organizing people who believe in that change and are willing to mobilize for it.
8. A random tidbit.
My family owns and operates a dinner theatre.  My favorite animal is the owl.  I have over 40 first cousins.  My family has polygamy in our history.
