Assigned Residence Hall:
Favorite flavor ice cream:
What a difficult decision! It has got to be a tie between classic vanilla and chocolate chip mint!
Interesting thing about you:
I sang on stage with the 80's hair band, Foreigner, in the summer of 2010 and live on BBC 5Live Radio for the premier of Glee in England!
Favorite spot on campus:
I love the Giant's Grill. Everyone who works there knows me by name and how I order my food - extra cheese please!
Why did you choose your major?
I have always loved working with small children. I starting babysitting at 12 years old and have loved it ever since. I heard about how great Keystone's education program is and was instantly interested.
Why did you decide on Keystone College?
I love the small classroom setting and the campus is stunning. It is the ideal place to get involved and meet new people!
What do you like most about Keystone?
I really love that all my professors know my name and thoroughly care about their students!
Favorite member of the Keystone Family:
Although I have had some really great professors and met so many wonderful people, I cannot seem to pick a favorite quite yet. I guess we'll see what is ahead of me and what type of people I meet along the way!
My favorite class:
College Writing II - The discussions we have about the stories we read get the class involved and makes time fly!
Give one thing you were surprised to discover at Keystone College:
How involved everyone is in student activities and how much school spirit runs through the students' veins!
Advice for future students:
Never doubt what you can do. Get determined and don't give up!
In my spare time:
I sing, dance, and doodle like a pro.
I want to become an early childhood teacher or a counselor at an elementary school. I want to help students advance their education while staying a healthy, happy, child.
How do you feel KC has, or will, help you in attaining these goals?
Keystone prepares students for their future careers so in advance that you obtain much more information and experience than ever expected! I cannot wait to see how my future unfolds here at Keystone!
Anything else you want to share:
Although it might seem tough and stressful at times, your college years should be some of the best years of your life! Expand your horizons by trying new things like joining a club you’re unfamiliar with, or simply put yourself out there and meet new people! Keystone is an extremely accepting school with a very friendly environment; don’t ever think you’re alone.
