My name is Merrin O’Connor and I am from Kansas City (Go Chiefs!) I am so excited to be a first-year at Iowa, I am living in Catlett this year. I am a double major in Journalism and sports studies in hopes of becoming a broadcasting sports journalist in the future. I am super motivated by my career and I just know that Iowa will help me reach my dreams.
I have a big family connection to Iowa. My grandpa, mom, uncle, and aunts are all Iowa alumni and my sister will be a senior this year. I am so excited to share my experience at Iowa with y’all. Go Hawks!
