Favorite Quote: "Do you ever have nightmares that you don't align to baseline grid?" - Mikayla Ostendorf

Best CT Memory: Walking down the San Antonio Riverwalk with the rest of the CT staff at convention last year. It was absolutely picturesque at night, and we ate at a great Tex-Mex restaurant called Iron Cactus. They had the best guacamole that we sat there eating for a whole hour.

A word that describes me is... enthusiastic because I'm passionate about the activities and organizations I'm involved in.

My interest in journalism is... news and opinions writing.
