B.A. in French & Int’l Studies, Iowa State University
M.A. in TESL, Minnnesota State Univerity 

Hometown: Ames, IA

Hobbies: Gardening, home improvement projects, juggling

Favorite international food: Impossible to choose just one… Fried bean cakes from Nigeria, eggplant “ikra” from Russia, Pad Thai from Thailand…  Trying foods from other countries is a great way to travel without having to pay the airfare!

I want to visit: Sweden, to follow up on some genealogical research done by my father.

Advice for international students and scholars: Make an American friend, bond with scholars from other countries, allow time to visit a few important places in Iowa and the rest of the United States. Make the most of your time here at ISU!
