My favorite class/professor...

is band and horn ensemble. I love my professors and my peers whom I get to perform with. I love these because in college the experience is so much different than that of high school. Everyone truly longs to be there and is working hard to make each other sound good. It goes beyond yourself and becomes about the product that you are creating as one and the process and journey you are all going on to get there. It is as close to magic as I think I will ever get. When we perform our concerts I am immersed in a euphoric state. I feel so honored to be able to play with my friends as well as under such incredible and knowledgeable professors whom I have the utmost respect for.

My favorite thing about Ellensburg is...

how beautiful it is and its history. Ellensburg is such a beautiful town with the kindest people! It gets all 4 seasons and each one is absolutely gorgeous! From the myriad of colors in the fall, to the winter wonderland, the spring flowers, and the bright sunny hills. This paired with the historical downtown buildings create for a stunning view day in and day out.

I chose Central because...

It feels like a home. I always feel like I am part of a close-knit community and a large family here. The campus is large enough so I don't know everyone personally, but small enough to where I recognize a lot of people I am not personally connected to. I have a sense of belonging and that I am an important part of the community here.

My favorite part of being an ambassador is...

I get to interact with incoming students. I love being able to help others know all of the things I love about Central and to help them find out if Central is a good fit for them. Central is a great place with a lot of great qualities and I am always so excited to share those and my experiences with so many people. I also remember being in their shoes and how daunting it can be. I want to help ease that transition and answer as many questions as I possibly can to make their experience that much more enjoyable and fun.
