My Eleven Fun Facts
1. I'm graduating in May and moving to Richmond to start my new job as a Technology Analyst!

4. I love roller coasters and have probably ridden on over 35 different ones. 
5. I am so blessed to have a Rivah house on the Great Wicomico River off the Chesapeake Bay where I could spend all summer. (4 of my sorority sisters all have houses within 10 miles and its in the middle of nowhere!) 
6. My favorite night to go out is Thursday, my two friends and I have a happy hour and dancing tradition Thursday's! 
7. I came to college not knowing a soul, forcing me to be more outgoing, and I could not be more thankful for my decision, Tech is my home! 
8. I am the oldest of my sisters and all my cousins. 
9. Like any true Maryland-er, I love seafood (especially crabs and hushpuppies!). 
10. I have watched every episode of Survivor and it is still one of my favorite tv shows!
11. I strongly believe in the power of being positive and confidence - they can take you far in life.
