What are you most excited about starting or experiencing at UW-Platteville?

I am excited to get the chance to experience what its like to live independent. I am excited to get the chance to meet new people and meeting people with the same interest as me. Going into the criminal justice field is what I am most excited for. The chance to gain knowledge of my dream job. I am hoping to apply for the FBI internship my first year at Platteville, which is a very competitive thing to get into. So I will be as active as I can with the Police Science clubs Platteville has to offer. Which I am so excited to be able to have fun at the job I want. I am also applying to the Platteville Police Department, So getting into the police station is what i'm excited for to. Being able to just go to the college of my dreams is what i'm truly excited for.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I enjoy being active with local police departments. I have been with the Madison Police Department going on ride alongs. I have trained with the Stoughton Police Department. Getting the chance to talk to many different officers as possible is something that I enjoy to do all the time. I enjoy reading and writing poetry. I love working because it gives me the chance to gain different work skills and communication skills. I love reading news updates about crimes and keeping up with around America police problems. I also enjoy to do a sport called curling. I have been curling for 5 years now and its something fun to do during free time.
