Whether I am cheering on my alma mater (Go Cyclones!) or making music with my friends, I think it is important to enjoy life to its fullest. Having lived in many different locations throughout my childhood I have been able to meet a variety of people and discover new places and ways of doing things. Understanding that everyone has their own story and making the most out of every situation are two things that I think are always important to remember.
