My name is Natalie Powell, and I am a junior at the University of Missouri. I am dual majoring in animal science and science and agricultural journalism. As a third-generation MU Tiger, I have bled black and gold for as long as I can remember. I’m from Maryville, Missouri, which is in the northwest corner of the state.
