My name is Katy Wicks! I live in Moscow, Idaho and attend to the University of Idaho. I love spending time outdoors, but when I am not I can usually be found doing graphic design projects, listening to podcasts, or making vegan snacks. I have always loved the ocean and been obsessed with everything about it, I see the ocean as a whole world outside of our own.
