My name is Kira and I am the newest member of the Student Ambassador executive board. I am now the secretary (or treasurer, I think the official title changes depending on the week…) and am SO excited for my new leadership role within this awesome group!!!! I am a junior Chemistry Teaching major from Northfield, MN. Along with Student Ambassadors I also work in the Admissions Office as a tour guide. Ever since I went on my very first college visit I’ve wanted to be a tour guide so it’s the perfect job for me. Going into work is more fun than it is work! I am also the co-president of Colleges Against Cancer. Needless to say, I keep pretty busy, but I love it that way!
I can’t believe Winter break is over and it’s already second semester!!!!! Time has seriously flown by, I can’t believe it! My winter break was great. I was able to spend the whole four weeks in Northfield spending time with my family/friends, relaxing, and getting back into my red and khaki to work at Target. The coolest thing I did over break was run the Polar Dash half marathon in St. Paul on New Years day. The temperature was -2 but I finished with a new personal time record of 1:36:14, or 7:21 minute miles!! Throughout my blogging you will find out that I am madly in love with running, and this was the absolute GREATEST way to start 2013!!! I’m ready to take on the New Year!!! Below is a picture of me after I finished 13.1 miles later…. BRRR!
I hope everyone is having a fantastic start to their New Year and semester!! Thanks for reading my blog!!
