Why are you excited to be a Peer Advisor?
The thing I’m most excited about being a peer advisor is helping people by using my strengths where other people aren’t as strong. We all have personal strengths and weaknesses, and I strive to create a space where anyone can feel comfortable expressing their needs and where they can help.
What is your favorite thing about UMD?
My favorite aspect of UMD is how many opportunities there are on and off campus. I love Duluth itself, being able to have beautiful nature around us to explore, but also having a town setting to find new and fun experiences. In addition to that, I love the opportunities on campus, there are so many different paths every student can take with specialized majors and minors, and so many clubs to get involved in.
