I am a 21 year old Marketing Student attending Western Technical College in La Crosse Wisconsin. Former High School screw off, turned dedicated college student. My hobbies include Fishing, Hunting, Sports, Music, and Learning. I like to think I am an outside the box thinker and open minded, but my mom insists I’m most stubborn person she know’s. am from Melrose, Wisconsin, the population of Melrose is just a smudge over 500 people. I think there are a lot of traits that came with me just because of the small town hospitality. One thing I have noticed is that I am a people pleaser, I always want people to be happy and try to keep people from conflict. I believe people from small towns tend to have this trait because you are forced to see everyone almost everyday at school, and overlying conflict can make things pretty awkward at the lunch table. Another trait I picked up from the small town atmosphere is the humility aspect of never forgetting where you came from and how you got there. Everyone in a small town knows your back story and knows how you where in the past. This is my favorite part about being from a small town, no matter how much someone changes over time, you know deep down that they are the same person you went to high school with.
