You'd be surprised to know that… I was born on the Fourth of July and I can ride a unicycle

If I could try anything and not fail: Be a professional athlete

If I could go on a road trip with anyone (from the past or present): I would go with my family and family friends to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

What I like best about Whitworth: The people and the professors

What I would like to do after I graduate: I would like to be a high-school teacher and coach and eventually get my master's degree.

The most important life lesson I've learned in my time at Whitworth: Do not be afraid to fail. Use failure as a stepping stone to success.
