As you have probably deduced by now, I am your mentor! Sorry it has taken me a hot minute to reveal myself, moving home from college is kinda crazy. But the time has come, sooo here is a little blog about myself and my mentor (you G Mentor like a grandma lol). Hope you Enjoy!
Well my name is Abbey Claes and I am a Senior in LAS. I have one brother who is also at Central in LAS which is pretty dang cool. Also, I have two very important redheads in my life who are my boyfriend Derek and my best friend Emily (who is also my mentor). As you noticed in the insta account I am from the Upper Peninsula, a town called Escanaba. Being from up north I really enjoy being outside even sometimes in the winter. My favorite things to do up here are going to the beach, hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing, and downhill skiing. However, I also love curling up on the couch and binge watching a show or movies. A few of my favorites currently are Parks & Rec, Game of Thrones, Brooklyn 99, Riverdale, and This is Us. Movies I like are To all the Boys I loved Before (my house crew this year watched it at least 30 times), any Marvel, Age of Adaline, and Say Anything (literally cried when they took it off Netflix). I am I am a big food lover, especially breakfast foods, my favorite place in Mt. Pleasant is Roz’s Diner! A few random facts about me are I love waking up early when everything is quiet and calm. Coffee is my bestest pal along with ice cream and popcorn. My favorite activity of all time is Goat Yoga, literally the best experience I have ever had. And the best fact of all is Dr. Davies and I were born in the same place which is wild. Besides food, shows, and other things I like to do here’s what I do at CMU. I am studying Communication Sciences and Disorders with plans to get my Master’s in Speech Language Pathology. My minors are in Child Development and Leadership. I work in the Office of the President which is the coolest job around. Being able to work there with such amazing people is a highlight of Central for me. Also, I am in a sorority, Circle K, Leadership Safari, and Order of Omega. You can always find me in either Warriner Hall or the Health Professions Building, I basically live in them lol.
Emily is my mentor, and she is the most genuine person on this earth. While she has already graduated and is in the real world she is one of the most important individuals in my life. Besides being my mentor she is also my Big in my sorority and basically my everything. She loves her dog Berklee who is the best dog in the world and will steal all scrunchies. Em is from the metro Detroit area so we still see each other when we are able too. She and I share a love for Parks and Rec and really relate to Amy and Leslie lol. If you want to check Em out her instagram account is @baierems.
So there is a little bit about the family you are joining. I am so excited to meet you both and take on CMU together in the fall. I can’t wait for all the adventures we will have like the Jonas Brothers. If you need anything over the summer let me know, I am always here for you! My number is 906-280-5647. Also, I somehow deleted the instagram account I made for you two (sorry) so if you want to text me your address and I will send you a cute little thing soon, thanks a bunch. ILY
Here are some pictures of me, what I love, and a few people who I am super close with!
