These pictures are from a trip I participated in over Fall Break through Clemson's ABP. We were sent to Baton Rogue with the task of cleaning up and demolishing homes that were damaged by a flood in August. We worked under Samaritans Purse and were able to help out three families. The top left picture shows me and a man whose home was flooded pretty severely. I had the task of demolishing his kitchen and bathroom. The top middle picture shows my entire group after we finished a home. In the top right, you see me and a woman named Pat. Her entire home was destroyed in the flood and she had been living in a black-mold infested home for months. She taught me the true meaning of finding the good in the bad. The bottom two pictures are from New Orleans. The culture and environment were very different, but I really enjoyed it!
I enjoy hiking and being outdoors. The picture on the left is in Pisgah National Forrest at Looking Glass Mountain. The picture on the right is at Crowders Mountain State Park.
Pictured above is my incredible family! My parents are two of my best friends, and I wouldn't trade my brother for the world. My brother is a junior at USC (bleh) and is a mechanical engineering major. My mom is a preschool teacher, and my dad works at Duke Energy in Sr. Operations.
I have danced competitively for 15 years, and it taught me who I am today. It is a sport and an art that I will always cherish. The top left is my senior elite jazz group. The bottom left is me and my duet partner of nine years who also doubles as my best friend. Shortly before this photo was taken, we won first place at Nationals. The picture on the right is my senior elite contemporary. We had an undefeated season and also won first place at Nationals.
