Kylie Foss (she/her/hers)

Major: B.A. in Anthropology from University of MN

Tyler Christianson

I am: an out of state student from Illinois in my junior year who keeps finding different projects to explore.  I also am an avid pinball, board/video game, and yard game enthusiast.  I’m a huge technical theatre nerd who can probably scale stairs faster and quieter than you can.  Also, I’m a certified Microsoft Office Specialist in Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Access, and Outlook - for those few people who use it.  I’m an open book and will gladly talk about different topics with those who ask.

Bilan Jama (she/her/hers)

Major: International Business with a minor in Marketing
I am: an 18 year old who has yet to get her permit. Not because I couldn’t but because it has taken me this long to realize that that is something I should’ve done and gotten by now. I have interests in photography, traveling and meeting new people.

Erik Halaas (he/him/his)

Major: B.A. in Religion and American Racial and Multicultural Studies // MPA in Health Policy and Management
I am: a connector of people, resources, and ideas; a youth development and public health advocate; a community builder; an on-again off-again creative; a father of two goofballs.

Hanan Bare (she/her/hers)

Major: Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science
I am: a first year student with a passion for building and technology. I am interested in all things science (particularly science fiction) and I love learning and exploring new things.
