    Brooke's Bio:
    I came to Duluth because I love the city, and this small school has a home-like feel. I play volleyball here and have other interests in listening to music, being outdoors and hanging out with friends. I like to stay active as much as I can, and I don't think I'll have any problem finding something to do in this amazing city. After graduation, I want to enroll in CSS’ Physician Assistant graduate program.

Letters of Gratitude

Over break, I decided to start improving on my happiness and gratitude towards life.  I have always been super interested in the science of happiness, and I know that there is a psychology course offered every other year to students.  In this course, at the end of the spring term and into summer, the students get to go to Denmark, which is the happiest country in the world.  I like to watch TED talks and read different things about learning to be content and happy with the life you live.  So, one of the first things I did to show more gratitude in my life was to write letters of gratitude to friends, professors, and people from high school who have all influenced my life in a good way.  I know a letter might not mean a whole lot to them, but it definitely makes me feel better to express my gratitude to them over the course of my life so far.  I think it’s a really good thing to do, and everyone should do it because I feel really good after sending them. I don’t expect anything in return, except for them to keep up the good work because they truly are good people.
