I graduated high school in 2019 and started college at Inver Hills as a freshman and will be a sophomore starting fall semester, 2020. Before I started at Inver, I joined its TRIO program and it has given me opportunities to get involved on campus so I could start my next chapter off positively. Student Senate is something I have been involved with since I started college. In high school, I was involved in the band program and participated in some Japanese club activities.
