What are Three Words to describe UMACHA?
Diligent, Helpful, Understanding

What has Been Your Favorite Project at UMACHA?
Of the few projects I’ve been a part of so far my favorite has been updating publications.
Where Would You Like to go on a Dream Vacation?
I’d love to go to Greece and Italy, there’s so much history to see there.
You are Happiest When?
I’m an indoor person, so any time I’m in a climate-controlled environment whether alone or with friends and family I’m happy. Exceptions can be made for fall and spring when the weather and sun aren’t trying to kill me.
Least Favorite Food?
I eventually learned to accept most of my least favorite foods growing up, but there will always be one that I can’t stand: Lima Beans
Are You Messy or Organized? I try to be organized, but every now and then things get away from me and I have to rein everything back into place.
