What do you do to make a Healthy UNH? I always take advantage of the fitness classes, going for runs outside around town, eating the healthy options in the dining hall, etc. I share this with my friends so they can practice healthy lifestyles while at college too. I also enjoy going to sporting events or events in the MUB with people to get away from the stress of school work.

Favorite Food: Avocado. Whether it’s for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you can add it to just about anything!

Favorite Movie: Tommy Boy

Favorite Book: I'm not much of a reader because I usually don't have time to get into a good book, but I do enjoy reading magazines and articles. Anything on the newsstand or online, from health advice, to love advice, or the newest technology, just about anything that catches my eye.

What place in the world do you most want to visit? Australia! I have been thinking of studying abroad in Australia for a few years now, and am currently in the application process to go for the spring '15 semester. It may be because I grew up watching Crocodile Hunter...Steve Irwin was my idol! But in all seriousness, I'm hoping to get a look at the world in a different angle and really embrace the difference in culture. It seems like a beautiful country, friendly people, and there's a wide range of outdoorsy activities to enjoy.

Favorite Dining Hall: Stillings. I lived in Sawyer Hall sophomore year and Stillings was a part of my routine that I really enjoyed and it is usually more relaxing than a busy HoCo.

What do you love about UNH? I love the people and community of UNH- just good vibes all around. There is always someone new to meet and something new to discover around campus.

As a Healthy UNH intern, what are you most excited about? I’m excited to enhance my own writing skills and share healthy habits with the UNH community. I’m sure I will be learning just as much as the audience.
