I’m a sophomore currently studying music education looking to double major in history. In my free time I love to search the internet for new music and I love watching funny Instagram videos. I joined APO fall semester 2017. I heard about the organization through a friend in a summer school class and the service opportunities stuck out to me as I’ve always wanted to help out in the community. My favorite part of the organization is the weekly meetings because they’re where every brother takes time out of their busy schedules to incorporate APO into them and it’s a nice place to see all your brothers in one room together.
