I have taken Spanish courses since freshmen year of high school.

Word Processing


Woodworking: I particpated in 4-H for 10 years and the project I most enjoyed was woodworking. Over the years my projects became more and more complex as my skill set improved. I recieved Reserve Grand Champion at the Johnson County Fair in 2011. It is rewarding for me to take raw boards of wood and create a piece of furniture that will last a lifetime.

Being outdoors: I am not the kind of person who likes to spend a great amount of time indoors. If I have the chance to be outside I will, because nothing puts me in a better mood.
