MEET THE FRESHMAN

Screen Shot 2017-06-22 at 10.24.50 PM

My name is Maggie Schopp. I’m the oldest and most mature out of me and my sister however everyone thinks she’s older because she’s like 6 feet tall. Fun fact I don’t really look like my family so the joke is I’m adopted and every time I meet new people I tell them that. I have a passion for movies and ice cream specifically Ben and Jerry’s Strawberry Cheesecake. If anyone ever needs a person to eat with or watch movies with in your girl. I also love adventures, I’ve been skydiving once and plan to go again as well as cliff diving sometime soon.
