From Povi Romero

To the baddest babe in the northern hemisphere! Cherishing the times we spent at Lingerie at Tabard, making art in the VAC, and hanging with Ty! So thankful that he brought you into my life years ago. I remember the big cabin trip we took for my birthday years ago and I was shocked by the gorgeous earrings you made me and by how strong you are in your spirit. Please, continue to blow my mind. xoxo Povi

From Augusta Terkildsen

I have never felt safer with anyone. I often think back on the times when we would take walks at night. We often talked about tattoos and things that we enjoy; livin our true auntie lives. We will continue to laugh and love, and someday you can teach me, a down-souther, about the beautiful ways of the ocean and ice. I want to offer you a heartfelt congratulations from the warm prairies.

From Matthew Gore

I have never met such strength and wisdom in someone, other than maybe my mother. You have never failed to impress me. I remember being in Hawaii with you and having some long talks about life. We don't always choose where the road takes us, only our response. Somthing you knew so young, and I was still learning.

There are no words for how proud I am of you! From being a political advocate and leader for your home town, to conquering the ivy league, you never lost you connection to the people.

I wish for you, the greatest gifts, happiness and fullfillment. May you ever be humble as you shoot towards the stars.

With Love and Admiration,

From Cat

Yes! Queen! Slay!

From Taylor


A big congrats to you on graduating! I'm sure it was a challenging journey, but I hope you had a lot of fun and made plenty of mems along the way. I'll always remember "meeting" you in the NAH basement, even if were just studying! lol I hope you find what you're looking for after graduation, and that it comes easy. I believe you'll be a major influence in uplifting your community back home and healing those around you. Best of luck! 

Sending love and light,

I'm so so proud of you and inspired by your hard work and dedication but also your intention to make Dartmouth an inclusive space and making a comfortable space for NADs and Alaskans.
