A Letter for Better

Before I started my sophomore year at CMU, I made it my goal to find involvements that I genuinely looked forward to participating in.

Down to Detroit We Go!

Detroit is a place I've traveled to quite often throughout my life. From ice-skating at Campus Martius, adventuring at the DIA, going to Tigers games, and running 5k's in Corktown and Belle Isle, living 40 minutes away from the city has allowed me to gain an appreciation for Detroit that most Americans don't possess. Granted, this also means… Continue reading Down to Detroit We Go!
