My Greatest Supporters

My biggest thank you has to be for my mom, dad, Rosey, and Ryan who have continuously supported me and shown me unconditional love from day one!! Of course, my second thank you is to my Grandma for supplying me with banana bread, homemade cookies, and so much laughter for all four years. Finally, thank you to my best friend, Lex Flores, our band Sattle Rake, and all you other goobers out there<3

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

My absolute favorite memories have got to be all the nights I spent at the dorms on campus hanging out with friends, supporting each other, studying together, laughing till we cry, writing songs together, going on hikes, enjoying the pool, shouting at the top of our lungs how happy we all are together. I look back at my college experience with nothing but fondness, it's strange to think it's over!

My Next Chapter

Although it is not for certain yet, I want to get my PhD in philosophy. My number one goal in life is to become a professor of philosophy, hopefully in the field of gender or Western thought. Until then, I hope to write a book one day about the influence social media has on gender portrayals in the modern world. While I'm researching grad schools I'll be living in Sacramento with my parents.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

A spontaneous picnic on chapel lawn with some of my favorite people, just spending community time together laughing and eating good food. I've traveled all over with some of them, from Missouri to Canada, but that moment on the grass is my favorite because it is such a simple joy to share an afternoon with people you love.

My Next Chapter

I'll be working in the bay as a campus ministry intern for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship! I’m beyond excited to start working on a staff team that shares my passion for Christ and college students. InterVarsity was a huge part of my college experience: it’s where I met some of my closest friends and dug deep into my faith, and I can't wait to serve the next generation of students this fall.

My Greatest Supporters

My greatest supporters are my friends and family. My parents and sister have always been my foundation. They have pushed me to be the best that I can be and they inspire me daily. My parents work so hard to support me and support their family. Seeing the work that they have done to put me here has pushed me these 4 years. I am honored to be their daughter and be a part of the Clark family!

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

My favorite SMC memory has to be going to rugby games and other SMC sporting events. The best feeling is waking up on a Saturday morning, coming to campus, with a coffee in hand, and knowing that you are there to see your school play. The next best memories have also been through the Rec Center. I spent 4 years there where I made lifelong friends. I am so fortunate to have worked there!

My Next Chapter

I am not sure what the next chapter holds for me, but I plan to go into Hospitality and Hotel Management. One of my favorite feelings is being able to make other people's days. Nothing is better than making someone smile, and I hope that I can be that face for people when they go on vacation or a business trip. My ultimate dream is to work for one of the Disneyland hotels and do some traveling.
