About The Author

Chelsie Kasun Student Blogger, Office of Student Affairs Social Media Intern

I am studying Informatics in the School of Informatics and Computing (SOIC) at Indiana University. I believe the moments of impact in one's life are found in his or her connection to another person or an idea, so I share a few of my college stories on here. I love the sunshine and fall season. Ice cream is my favorite food, and I usually drink my coffee black. I like to talk, but I love to listen. My favorite artists are Lana Del Rey, A Fine Frenzy, Bruno Mars, MGMT, Group Love, Imagine Dragons, Florence + The Machine, The Xx, and Mumford and Sons. I like when people appreciate music and art. Jesus is my anchor. I love reading novels and poetry. My favorite authors are William Shakespeare, J.D. Salinger, F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, and Chuck Palahniuk. Give me something to think about, and I'll return the favor.

"Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” - Dr. Seuss
