What makes you the happiest?
I’m happiest when I’m doing work I’m passionate about, in nature, or with my friends and family.

How’d you become a Spider?
I applied the summer before my sophomore year. I got a rejection letter by accident, but then Jono emailed me for an interview!

What are your plans after graduation?
I am not sure of my plans right now, but I hope to work in public affairs, either a non-profit, think tank, government, or campaign.

What’s one thing you’ve learned from working at Spiders that you think will help you in the future?
Spiders taught computer skills that I have used in all my internships and that I know I will use in the future. The experience here is so relevant to many careers—one of the reasons why Spiders is so great!
