I enjoy taking pictures, hiking, playing lacrosse, and doing anything that gives me an adrenaline rush. I am excited to meet new people and experience life on my own. To me, #ThrowYourO means showing school spirit and being open to trying new things.

The University of Oregon has not only given me an abundance of outlets for all my creative energy but has also surrounded me with passionate peers and teachers who inspire me on the daily. It's the campus culture, school pride, and welcoming community that truly embodies what it means to #ThrowYourO

Things to know about me: I'm sassy, passionate, I had a cow named Huble when I was younger, I make some great pasta, and I run a lot. To me, throwing your O means striving to be your best, pushing your limits, and giving your all in everything you do.
