I am in my final year of a History Degree and will be graduating and going into teacher's college next year. I have been with NUSA for three years now and this is my first year on the executive. NUSA has been a big part of school life here and I hope it will be the same for our students. I am also a member of Students on Stage and have been with them for a number of years as well. I enjoy skiing, hiking, and camping in my space time, or anything that gets me away from my desk. I look forward to the coming year and working with everyone.
