Honestly I have never been good at this sort of thing, but here goes nothing! My name is Andrea! I was born and raised in the midwest roots in the heart of Central Illinois. I am a senior communications major with a concentration in public relations at Bradley University with aspirations of becoming a community relations coordinator or event specialist. Outside of academics, I am in Alpha Chi Omega - Zeta Eta Chapter.

Before my life as a public relations major, I was originally a nursing student (say whaaaat?!) My entire high school career I was so focused on finding a calling that allowed me to help other people. Upon high school graduation, I spent four years attending a small, private nursing college pursuing my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. As time grew closer to graduation, I no longer felt a passion for such a humble field. I am glad I followed my heart because it helped me grow as an individual and allowed me to recognize a new set of passions.

Outside of college, I enjoy traveling and I definitely wish I had more money to do it. I have been to the mountains, to the ocean, to the skyscrapers, and I would love to see more of what the world has to offer. I am also huge into the concert and festival scene. I have seen over 60 (!!!) performances live of all sorts of genres, but hey who is counting?! I do not know where I want to be in 10 years, or even five. Though after graduation, I will be packing my bags and heading out to the east coast to live in the mid-atlantic area (DC, Maryland, Virginia)!
