Getting here:

I found COA though an orginization called Kroka Expeditions, where I went on many summer expeditions, and took part in a winter semester program in 2019. 

Activities, traditions, celebrations:

One of my favorite activities is expedition, particularly winter skiing, road walking, and canoeing. I am also a big fan of roller derby and have been skating competitively for three years in Brooklyn, where I call home. 

Passions & motivations:

I found my passion for animal rights 4 years ago, and have been practicing veganism since then. I was heavily involved in the AR activism and outreach in NYC and will continue to share what veganism is. Though veganism is primarily about animal rights, it has helped me be more conscientious about the way I’m living, and has encouraged me to be more open minded and active in my pursuit of low waste living (hopefully zero waste one day).

Adventures yet to come:

Sea kayaking, and road biking expedition.

Best meal on campus:

Pesto pasta and kale salad!
