I will be attending Penn State University with a major in Secondary English Education and possibly a double major in Geology as well. While I am at Penn State, I plan on joining the club ski team and the Speech and Debate team. I also want to be able to continue my service with Big Brothers Big Sisters in college. My hope after getting my degree is to become a teacher and help to change the educational system in order to make it more accessible to everyone.
