Hi! My name is Danika, I’m a second-year psych. student with a writing minor. I’m also on the FLC cycling team. If I won the lottery I would probably pay for college and take a few extra years to take more fun classes lol. If I could have one superpower, I think I’d like to be a shapeshifter. I feel most at home on the bike, on my group rides back home.
