My name is Montana Peterson. I am a 19-year-old University of Utah student double-majoring in communication and recreation.  I am also working on completing a Business minor.  I am taking classes to pursue a career in public relations or in event coordinating.

I am currently holding a position in my philanthropic sorority as the communication chair. I am very passionate about communication and eager to learn more as I continue through school.  I am a very driven person and have high expectations for myself.

I am from Park City, Utah, and enjoy taking full advantage of all that Utah has to offer.  I love participating in the Sundance film festival, hiking in the mountains and playing tennis.  Although I love staying local,I also am an avid traveler who is fascinated with learning about different cultures. After I have completed school and graduate, I hope to get the opportunity to travel more.
