My motivation

I am motivated by the abundance of love that I have in my life. I am lucky enough to have a supportive family, incredible friends, and a university that encourages me to pursue my dreams to the fullest.

My latest accomplishments

I am heading off to Costa Rica for my second study abroad experience during my undergraduate studies. I recently tested into the classes that allow me to study Communication classes in Spanish with the locals. This is a lifelong dream of mine, and I feel extremely accomplished and excited!

Next big goal

I would like to work for a non-profit that allows me to travel internationally. I can't wait to see the future that lies ahead of me!

Why is choosing your own path important?

My life is beautiful, and I can't wait to see what's next. My path has lead me to great places and amazing people, which is everything I could ever hope for and more.

Favorite place on campus
