Family ties to Texas A&M:

None 🙁 But my mom finally got her dream of having an Ag. She wanted to be one, and now my little sister will attend A&M, and we will start a full on Aggie Family!

I chose to attend Texas A&M because…

The traditions and culture make me feel at home. Coming from a small town I was nervous to move somewhere, but everyone at A&M made me grow as a better person as well create a home away from home experience.

My favorite things to do on campus are…

going to AGGIE FOOTBALL GAMES! I have no idea what is going on, but it’s definitely the best experience. Also, finding new hidden study areas around campus.

When I have free time, I like…

walking my dog, getting coffee with my mentees, organize my calendar for the upcoming weeks, and plan random vacations.

The craziest thing I’ve done is…

Ride a camel in Dubai!

My favorite place to study is…

Behind the Bush Building by the lake

My favorite ECON professor is…

Craig Schulman

My favorite part of being an Economics student is…

All the students are super friendly and willing to form study groups!

If I could share an afternoon with anyone, I would love to share it with…

My grandpa

If I knew I could not fail, I would…

Be a Supreme Court Justice

If money was not a consideration, I would love to…

Donate to all animals shelters, orphanages, people in impoverished countries, and people who cannot afford higher education.

What is your passion and how are you committed to pursuing it?

My passion is to give back to the communities my family comes from, and I am pursuing it by continuing my education to pursue a career that will allow me to expand US Business into Mexico.

After graduation, I plan to…

Pursue a law degree and become a corporate attorney.

The one Texas A&M experience I will always remember is…

Hearing the stadium at full capacity singing our war hymn
