I love all things music, all things coffee and am a big fan of card games, board games, and video games! If I didn’t live in Fargo, I would love to hike more! I also enjoy hanging out with my cat, Crouton. 

 

I am so excited to be the female LIT leader this summer, as it was one of the most influential things I ever did as a camper! God is going to move in powerful ways and I cannot wait to be a part of his ministry at camp!

I love just about anything that has to do with music, whether it’s singing, theater/musicals, or even just blasting it in the car. I also love playing games and just overall anything I can do with other people!

In my free time I love consuming all types of fiction, anything from Marvel movies to anime! I'm almost constantly listening to music, really anything that catches my ear but mainly alternative rock and J-pop. I also love anything outdoors, whether it's watching sunsets or climbing trees. 

 

This summer I am most excited just to get to know all the campers I come across! As this will be my 2nd summer here, I loved all of the great conversations I got to have with many of my campers and I am excited for that again!
