Me in 350 words!
Hello everybody! As you can see from my bio, my name is Kayleigh Paddock and I am a first-year student here at Dartmouth. I am super excited to share my Dartmouth experience with you all and this is actually my first time blogging ever (super exciting)! I am from the small town of Tuba City, which is located on the Navajo reservation in Arizona. Growing up in the Painted Desert of Arizona, I have always been surrounded by such a dry environment, so coming to Hanover where there are REAL TREES is a huge change for me! The New England foliage prompted me to buy my first, and definitely not last, pack of Claritin. Of course, growing up in the southwest, I have never seen snow reach heights above 3”, so I am a bit terrified of the New Hampshire winters who are notorious for being as low as -20 degrees and packing on snow as high as 2 feet.
A couple of fun facts about me:
- I am a HUGE Disney fanatic!!
- I love playing volleyball and I am currently trying out for the club volleyball team here at Dartmouth, so fingers crossed I’ll make cuts!
- I have four cats, but I only like three of them. One is nearly 14-pounds!!
There’s a bit about me…feel free to send questions my way and enjoy my future posts!
