Favorite place in Duluth: This is an extremely tough question to answer because I have not been to all of the places in Duluth that are on my bucket list. I have been to many different places, but have so many more places to go see and explore. Currently, my favorite place in Duluth is the top of Enger Tower. Anyone who has been will agree that the view is absolutely breathtaking. It is a pretty basic choice, but I figure you can’t go wrong with a view like that. My friends and I have made many trips up to the tower and I take all of my visitors there so they can experience it, too.

Favorite hobby:
When I have free time, which is rare, I enjoy doing anything with my friends or just relaxing and watching TV or YouTube. I love watching vlogs on YouTube and my absolute favorite vlogger is Abby Asselin. I have also recently started binge watching One Tree Hill again, but it consumes me so I have to be careful to only watch an episode or two at a time. I have seen the entire series twice, but it is amazing how much I forgot about the show.

Best career advice I’ve received:
I have always been one to get super worried and nervous about making decisions. Because of this, my mom has always advised me not to be too anxious about choosing a career path. She tells me that whatever I am supposed to do will come to me, so stressing about it really is not worth it. Being a freshman, this advice is great for me because I am just in the beginning stages of my career journey.

Piece of career advice you have for other students:
Talk to important people in your life about your plans for the future. Although your path is ultimately up to you, hearing another’s opinion about what strengths and qualities they see in you and how those would fit into a certain field can be extremely helpful. Your families, close friends, teachers, or even employers might see something in you that you do not see in yourself, which might open the door for a whole range of different possibilities.
