The Octagon

Emma Boersma
Freshman Emma Boersma loves most food in general, but especially pasta. If you ask her to share, depending on her mood she may or may not relent (but with an excessive amount of groaning). She likes to draw and doodles all over her assignments. Her favorite season is winter, only because it is not summer. One day she hopes to move to a place where snow days actually exist.
