I’m just your average Harry Potter obsessed, carb loving, sushi hating, dog crazy, kind of outgoing but also really introverted, movie-a-day advocating, adventure encouraging, non-vegan University student studying abroad for the semester at Curtin University in Perth, Australia! My home University is in Richmond, Virginia where I study Biology and Chemistry in hopes of being accepted into dental school in the fall.

I have two dogs, both of which I basically consider my children. One is an English Bulldog (Jett) and the other is a rescue German Shepherd (Maximus). My brother, Grant, is two years younger than me but somehow looks about four years older (?). People think we’re twins, but we’re really just best friends. I LOVE MY PARENTS with my whole heart – they have supported me through every endeavor of mine, regardless of how ridiculous or angsty some of them may have been.

I try to keep life simple – do what you love. Do what is good for both yourself AND others. Be selfless, timeless, and always looking forward. Acknowledge the beauty that the world has to offer. Bottle it. Savor it. And always search for more of it.
