Hannah Hicks

PRESIDENT OF KAIROS

Senior, English Writing and Linguistics 

"My name is Hannah Hicks and I am majoring in English with a Writing Emphasis. I have been apart of the Kairos officer team for the past two years as the Vice President of Stewardship, but I am so excited to step into the role of President this year. I am from Atlanta, GA; yet, I do not enjoy any Southern comfort foods beside mashed potatoes and I have a distinct lack of a Southern accent. I have two dogs at home and will stop to say hello to any dog I pass on the sidewalk. I love getting coffee with friends and spending slow afternoons reading outside! I look forward to serving Kairos this year and getting to know everyone.
