  why did you study communication?  
  I wanted (and still do) to understand how people use and manipulate meanings in order to get what they want and to accomplish relational and work-related goals.

  why is your chapter important?  
  We will all be called on to give a speech that brings people together and/or shows family and friends how much we appreciate them. The ability to give a special occasion speech is a skill that will prove valuable over the course of your entire life.

  where is the most amazing travel destination you have ever been, and why?

Peru—hands down. The Andes were beautiful, especially Machu Picchu. But the people were the best part—so friendly and authentic. I want to go back someday.

  If you had a "theme song" that played whenever you walked into a room of people, what would it be?
  "It's a Beautiful Day"
Ziggy Marley
