My name is Eric Hildestad; I was born in the Twin Cities suburb of White Bear Lake, Minnesota. I am a junior at UMD majoring in writing studies and minoring in communications. I am a sports enthusiastic and trivia master which is a blessing and curse (depending on which one of my parents you ask).
Lake Voice position?
What interests me?
Growing up I aspired to be a professional baseball or football player (depending on the season) unfortunately my parents did not pass down substantial athleticism so I’m stuck on the sidelines living out my fantasies through others.
I needed an escape from my suburban life and when my elder sister chose a university in close proximity to home I didn’t feel as though I wanted to experience what she experienced so I ran two and a half hours north and here I am.
