Special thanks: Thank you to Joan who shared her wisdom and compassion for teaching with me this past year and to my professors, family, friends, and sisters who supported me through my four years.

Favorite UMaine memory: My favorite memory from UMaine was Homecoming 2019. I spent time with alumni who had impacted my four years at UMaine and celebrated UMaine traditions for one of the last times as an undergraduate student.
