My motivation

I have always pushed myself to do whatever it takes to reach my goals. The support of my family and friends has been an integral part of my success as a student and I wouldn't be here without it.

Why is choosing your own path important?

Choosing your own path forces you to work hard to achieve your goals. Investing yourself and your time and energy into a pathway for your own future will make it feel that much better when you finally reach your destination. It is a blessing that you will never take for granted.

Favorite place on campus

My favorite place on campus is my residence hall, Deans Hall, spending time with my residents.
