Hi everyone! I’m Hannah and I’m looking forward to meeting you all soon! I’ve lived in Tulsa, Oklahoma my whole life, but will finally get a change of scenery in the Fall of 2020 when I head off to Stanford. In college, I’m planning on majoring in human biology, but I’m really not too sure yet and can’t wait to explore new areas this year. I went to an international Spanish immersion school for elementary school so as a kid my Spanish was pretty good, but I haven’t taken a Spanish class since so it’s VERY rusty and I am looking forward to working on it! I love dogs (so it’s going to take a lot of self-restraint not to pet the stray dogs), music, dancing (badly but with enthusiasm), hanging out with friends, TV series (Orange is the New Black, New Girl, Game of Thrones, Scandal, Shameless, Breaking Bad , etc.– I watch altogether too much TV), spending time outside (hiking, rock climbing, at the lake, or chilling out),  cooking, and travel! I cannot wait for this semester filled with adventures and unique experiences and can’t wait to meet y’all in person.
