Please describe you campus & community involvement while at U of G.
During my undergrad years, when I wasn't chilling with the fish in the Hagen Aqua Lab, I was super involved on campus, mainly within the Student Experience Department and a few organizations that worked closely alongside them.

What prompted you to become a Liaison Officer? What excites you most about this position?
I decided to become a Liaison Officer to not only spread word about the University, but for my own professional growth as well. They say life is not just about the destination but more so the journey - and in this role, that's what it's all about!
What excited me most? Haven't we all dreamed of Life on the Road?!
