About a week ago I wrote my very last exam of my undergrad (#boomdone!). As thrilling as this accomplishment was I don't feel done with school or that I've actually finished my undergrad.

She shared how taking a hot yoga class when she's really stressed or spending time with horses helped her maintain a balanced life.
