If you could go back in time, what would you tell your high school self about how they should approach college?

I would tell myself that college is a journey. “You pack your bag, set your course, and embark on voyages that take you to far horizons.” Along that journey, you’ll meet new people, make new friends, run into obstacles, overcome adversity, and learn who you are as a person. What’s important is to make sure you stay the course and not lose sight of the goals you set for yourself. 

What are you most excited about in the next 12 months? What are you most nervous about in the next 12 months?

I’m most excited about starting my new career in the health administration field. I’m a little anxious about finding the right fit for me. There are so many different jobs in this career field to explore and I just hope to find one that suits my personality. 

What are you proudest of in your college career?

With my involvement in athletics at the university, I am proud to have been consistent with my grades. I was able to stay on the Dean’s honor roll as well as the Athletic Director’s honor roll all for all four years.

What is your favorite quote/motto?

My favorite quote is a bible scripture. Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” My faith is an important aspect of my life and it’s what makes me complete.
