Hey everyone! My name is Jessica Sommers and I am a Junior majoring in Communications and minoring in Writing. I am from Scarsdale, New York which is in the county of Westchester. I am very, very close with my family and spend a lot of time with them. Both of my parents went to the University of Michigan and met here. Because of that, my family has been kind of obnoxiously obsessed with Michigan for years. My two brothers, Ben and Ethan, are rarely found not wearing Michigan clothes. Oh and my dogs name is Maizy Blue after the Michigan colors, maize and blue. So yeah, you could say we’re a little obsessed.
Aside from spending time with my family and friends, I love to travel and eat. I always love exploring new places and cultures. I actually am studying abroad in Barcelona second semester and I can’t wait! Most importantly though, I am obsessed with food. I pretty much spend every hour of every day planning out my meals, looking at pictures of my favorite foods and talking about food with my friends. I can proudly say that I will eat everything and anything someone puts in front of me. And I can eat A LOT of it.
I am very excited to begin my journey through the Sweetland Minor in Writing program. I have always been very passionate about writing and I am very excited to experiment more with my writing skills going forward.
