A few weeks after I’d decided to spend my fall semester studying abroad, I realized that would mean I’d be voting absentee in my first general election. At that point, I didn’t know just how consequential this election would become.
Class of 2018
Major — English and Psychology
Hometown — San Rafael, California
I’m a junior at Kenyon majoring in English and psychology, recently returned from a semester studying abroad in Stockholm, Sweden. Some personal favorites include list-making, semicolons, animals, introspection, falling snow, travel, lavender, good conversation, education, novels, postcards, color-coordinated notes, and peanut butter. My ideal Saturday night is one spent under a blanket enjoying a good book. I’m on the equestrian team at Kenyon, I volunteer at the Knox County Animal Shelter, and I love the time I spend with kindergartners at Wiggin Street Elementary School. In the future, I hope to have a job working with kids, words, or (ideally) both.
