Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a senior at Stanford from Georgia. I enjoy running, hiking, games of all types, listening to music, living. My nickname Francium comes from my AP Chemistry class when I jokingly said I'd bring in some francium for the class to put in water for an experiment. I have a passion for studying dreams and hope to spread this interest to the world someday. I think tomorrow is as good a day as any.
