What are you looking forward to most in your time with A2SF?

I am so excited to work on the Festival Footprint initiative and teach people about waste! I am looking forward to meeting and working with people at the festival. I want people to have a great time this summer and hope to help in that effort in any way that I can. I also cannot wait to see BARBU and some of the other artists and performers.

If you were the eighth dwarf, what would your name be?

I am going to go for Zippy. I am always moving around and running from one thing to another. At the festival this year, I think I will be going between many different areas. I try to stay positive and keep bouncing from one thing to the next.

I am looking forward to the change in atmosphere that A2SF will bring to our community when more families come to campus – and working with them directly is a huge plus! I’m also eager to learn and have a deeper understanding behind non-profit administration since that is what I’m hoping to go into after I graduate.

Someone told me my name as the eighth dwarf would probably be quirky.
