What is your favorite area of musical involvement? My favorite area of musical involvement is easily being a member of the ISUCF'V'MB! I enjoy being able to be active and play music with people who become like a family after so much time spent with them, as well as knowing that I am part of a group used to bring joy and entertainment to the community!

What interests you about TBΣ? I have always been interested in helping others and volunteering so combine that with my love of music and some of the kindest people I know, I knew that I would love to join TBĪ£!

Tell us something we don't know about you. Sometimes when I get really stressed or can't sleep I go for walks in the middle of the night into early morning. There was this one example where I left at 10PM and this was after a snowstorm blanketed the city earlier in the week. After I was walking around for a few hours already, I found a new area I have never been before and I saw a metal rail sticking out of the ground. I decided to go explore it, so I took off running as fast as I could when all of a sudden the ground fell out beneath me! It turned out that I found myself in a skate park and that the snow was so light and fluffy that when I tried to investigate it, the snow sort of compacted under me, giving the impression of the floor falling away. All in all it was pretty funny and I didn't get injured. I think the friend I convinced to go on the adventure with ended up crying with laughter when he saw me try to get out, but it was too dark out to be sure.

What's your favorite band memory? My favorite memory is the first time I ran through the tunnel into Jack Trice Stadium as a member of the ISUCF'V'MB. I was surrounded by my friends and there was an excited energy going through the group as we all took off running through the tunnel. Right as I was entering the stadium I could hear the song 'I Lived' by One Republic which is one of my favorite songs! It was just something about the excitement of my first game, and hearing the crowd blending into one of my favorite songs that solidified in my mind that I made the right choice of joining marching band. And therefore it is my favorite memory because it marked the happy beginning of joining college bands.
