Christy Vang and Jennifer Ervin

Christy Vang and Jennifer Ervin
Personal statement: "Family seems like a simple word, but is defined uniquely person-to-person. Christy defines family as 'someone I am comfortable with being myself around because of trust, compassion, acceptance, and love.' She sees Jen as family because they accept and respect her. The short time she has spent with Jen has created some of the best memories she has ever had. Because of Jen, she realized that beauty is versatile; there is no one right way to describe, or see, or feel, or hear beauty. For these two being silly is the beauty in their friendship. Jen defines family as 'a bond bursting with unconditional love, acceptance, and commitment.' Their diminutive time with Christy feels like a lifetime, and has expanded their horizons, giving them a new perspective on the world. Without each other they would not be who they are today." Christy Vang is a senior with a double major in Psychology and Anthropology and a minor in Art and Jen Ervin is a junior majoring in Chemistry.
