What does AWAKE give you the energy to do more of?

I recently started as an animal activist and doing work for different non-profits, and I started my own photography business. Without AWAKE I would not be up in the morning, so none of those would get done!

Favorite thing about your college or university?

I love the sense of community. No matter where I go I will always find someone from UM, and they always shout “Go Blue”. It’s a huge change from not knowing anyone, you always feel like someone get where you are coming from.

If you were an animal, what would you be and why?

I would be an elephant. Elephants are kind and compassionate, but they are fiercely protective. I am the same way, I am nice and willing to help people until the time you attack me, my family, or my friends, then I am not so nice.

What’s the most interesting fact about you?

I recently went vegan, so my cooking skills went from burning water to all my friends wanting me to make homemade pizza for them.
