Special thanks: Thank you to my mom and dad who have been my support system throughout my entire academic career. Also, thank you to all the staff at Lengyel Hall who have made UMaine feel like home to everyone who has stepped foot in the building! The support is unlike any other experience I have had.

Favorite UMaine memory: Having my brother Ben at UMaine has been a great experience and I am so thankful for our time together! Celebrating Homecoming with my family and friends now that he is here has been my favorite part of my time at the University of Maine.
