About Me

Hometown: Cincinnati, Ohio

A class that changed my life: A class that has changed my life would definitely be my Orientation Leadership class, a semester long prerequisite course to become an Orientation Leader. The class allowed me to learn about all of the offices and programs that were offered on campus. I was also able to network and meet many faculty, staff, and fellow students who I still keep in touch with today.

Best college experience: Becoming a member of my beloved sorority Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated and becoming an orientation leader. Through both of these endeavors, I learned many valuable life lessons and gained lifelong relationships.

One piece of advice: Get involved! Step outside of your comfort zone and try something new. You never know who you will meet, what you will learn, and where those interactions will lead you.

Favorite quote: “You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.” - Maya Angelou
