Hello! My name is Anjolie Konrath, and I am a senior from Broomfield, Colorado majoring in Molecular Biology and double minoring in Religion and Human Biology & Kinesiology.

I adore Colorado College and the extended Colorado Springs community where I’ve had countless opportunities to develop professionally and pursue my personal interests. In my free time, I love to bike, read, and practice my videography skills with Jesus Co., a local worship group.
