Tour Guide at Florida Southern College
Class of 2019
Hometown: Stillwater, MN
Although I have made many great memories throughout my time at Florida southern, my Junior Journey to the British Virgin Islands led to some fantastic experiences. During the trip, we lived on a Power Catamaran, yachted around to various islands, learned about the island culture, snorkeled in the crystal clear water, and planted trees to help contribute to the restoration of Virgin Gorda post Hurricane Irma. It was an incredible adventure and I am grateful to have had the opportunity!
I chose to attend Florida Southern College because of the excellent programs it has for students. The Junior Journey travel program is great because it gives every student the opportunity to study abroad. Florida Southern's Nursing program stands out from other schools as the direct entry into their program allows the students to begin clinical rotations their sophomore year. These two programs along with the friendly campus environment and academic success are why I chose to attend Florida Southern College.
My favorite thing to do in Lakeland is to go to Born and Bread Bakehouse on Saturday mornings for unique pastries such as the “cruffin.” Afterwards, my friends and I like to bring it back to campus and have a picnic while enjoying our delicious bakery items!
Traveling is one of my favorite hobbies! I love the adrenaline rush that comes when exploring a new place and experiencing the different cultures of the world. When I am not traveling or planning my next vacation, I can be found at the pool or the beach as I love swimming and being in the water.
