Hey everyone! The name’s Hannah Starke and I’m a junior here at CofC. Like what seems to be the greater half of the student body, I was once a very ambitious Biology major with every intent to go to Med school, but have since realized that you do not have to be a doctor to lead a fulfilling life. Words to the wise, if you are clandestinely taking this class, do not break it to your parents over dinner. Tell them over the phone, you’ll be able to escape the lecture a lot easier.
When I was the ambitious doe eyed freshman though, I joined the college EMS, purely as a resume booster, but have since come to love what I do with them. If I come into class and am barely able to stay awake, blame it on the drunken students that roam our campus at 3 a.m.
I also write for the school paper, primarily sports. While I enjoy news stories and getting to do a little bit of investigative journalism, sports is where my heart lies because I’m free to use as many adjectives and show as much bias as I want (as long as it’s in the CofC direction of course).
Between those two activities, I work at the Jewish temple, KKBE, on Hassel street. If you ever, and I mean ever, need some Jewish food, come to me, because my roommates are getting tired of me stocking the fridge with all the leftovers people force on me there.
As for my family, we originally hail from Oklahoma, where we do, in fact, live in houses, not teepees, and don’t ride horses to school. I moved here my Senior year of high school, and have been a Charlestonian ever since. I have one brother named Callaway (so named after a golf club), who is 8 and is the absolute coolest person I know.
