Did you know the World Wide Web turned 30 this year? We’ve sure come a long way since dial up! But with progress comes pitfalls, and that’s what my social impact initiative addresses. The World Wide Web is a universally accepted way of accessing internet sites. While e...

As I complete yet another semester of college and apply for graduation today, I can't help but think back on where my education began.

What a whirlwind weekend! I had just come off of writing a 150 page paper for my PR Theories course when I arrived at orientation Friday night. Despite my little identity crisis between a stressing college student in the heat of finals and a congenial titleholder, the...

Team Waseca had their final group hug before heading off to State today! Our directors Jen and Molly set up a pageant boot camp for us where we ran through all areas of competition and perfected our walks/performances.

My first platform appearance is complete! This past Thursday I had the pleasure of being Waseca Rotary's guest speaker. It was a little bumpy, but I've found that my first platform presentation always has its quirks. Now that I have the first one under my belt, I know...

I've always been a huge advocate for the breakfast for dinner movement. This evening, Megan and I volunteered at the Burnsville iHop for the National Pancake Day fundraiser. Every year on March 8th, iHop restaurants celebrate the holiday by giving out a free short-stac...
