Caleb originates from New York but very much loves Missoula #montanathuglife. He has a serious sense of style but isn’t afraid of looking like a hot mess. He enjoys eating food because he’s bored, long drives in the sunset, and awkward first talks with strangers. Caleb hopes to accomplish a huge push towards gender equality at his time at FMT because it’s time women get recognized for all the rad shit they do. While he’s not being an adult (shush it can’t happen if I don’t allow it), he’s watching Teen Wolf because, who doesn’t love teen werewolves with no shirts fighting?

IMG_8514PARIS SUMMERS

“Wow, what a name!” To top if off she was living in Paris, France for the last year and a half.  She has spent quite some time on her feet, weaving her way through the streets, museums and restaurants of ten different European countries. This is how she gets her creative inspiration, that, and her wise grandmother. Attending the University of Montana is the next step towards obtaining her goals, with a focus in psychology as her potential major.  In all her travels she has found a theme that points out to her the most, the power of connections, they play a major role in getting you to where you want to go. With all these life skills, she is ready to change the world and make a difference with the Forward Montanans.

While Sabrina was born in Washington state, she was raised in far too many other places to count, including Vilseck, Germany and (for about two years) Missoula, Montana. While she has not chosen a major yet, due in part to her indecisiveness and large number of impractical hobbies, Sabrina is taking steps toward her ultimate goal of world domination by joining Forward Montana and learning how to manipulate the political scene, as well as how not to stammer when apologizing for accidentally stepping on someone’s foot. In her spare time, Sabrina enjoys reading, drawing, building freeze rays and singing duets with potential love interests. While generally being awkward all around, she’s enthusiastic and hopes one day to ensure proper education for all, even if she has to hijack the school system to do so.
