Jeff is addicted to Penn State football, loves hip hop dance, runs to stay in shape but doesn’t particularly enjoy it, and is trying to get into woodworking. Alex is passionate about ballet, ice cream, and ministering to underprivileged kids.
Born and raised in farm country, Hannah came to love the city of Philadelphia as a student at Penn. This is her second year interning with Cru. Some of her interests include trivia, linguistics, and musicals (especially Hamilton). She also loves eating out, watching (and discussing) movies, amusement parks, and the beach.
