I went to Howard Lake Waverly Winsted High School, and throughout my years I was in a lot of activities my freshman and sophomore years, like FFA, cheer leading, basketball Mangar, and choir. As my junior and senior years came around, I started into post secondary or PSEO at St.Paul Community College, where I was able to graduate my senior year with a Associate's Degree of Arts. I made big accomplishments the last two years from graduating high school to college. The next big chapter of my life is to go to Bemidji State University for two more years and get my Human Resources degree. I am super excited to continue with my big plans of going into the Adult Foster Care field, which I will be following in my Mom's and Grandma's foot steps.
