What is favorite subject at Columbia College? Biology

What job are you hoping to get when you graduate? I am hoping to work for the Missouri Department of Conservation as a field biologist or a similar position elsewhere.

What’s something that you are very passionate about? Basketball, because to play in college, you have to dedicate a lot of time and effort.  Also being a good role model because you never know who is watching and who looks up to you so I am passionate about trying to do the right thing.

If you could have dinner with any three people (real or fictitious/ from any time period, dead or alive), which three people would you choose and why? Jesus so I can ask him what I am doing wrong.  David Blaine for some magic tricks and entertainment.  Bill Gates so he can pay for dinner.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? Play the electric guitar

What’s something not a lot of people know about you? I really like to cook.

Who is the one person that helped to make you who you are today? My Grandpa Clark, because when he died of leukemia about a month after being diagnosed, he made me realize that life is too short to be serious all the time and not be yourself.  He always had a smile whenever we got to see him and made me want to live my life like I could die tomorrow.  My dad told me be kind to everyone you meet because you never know who they know or when that kindness could be given to you.
