Family ties to Texas A&M:

My dad is a Class of ’93 Aggie, and raised me cheering on the Aggies! Once I graduate in ’23, we will be Aggies exactly 30 years apart!

I chose to attend Texas A&M because…

I was attracted to the shared values and friendliness here in Aggieland! I was raised coming to football games and being witness to the Spirit of Aggieland. I am so proud to be a part of the Aggie Family!

My favorite things to do on campus are…

I enjoy studying in the Flag Room, getting coffee with friends at Starbucks, and exploring near the Bush School. That area is stunning!

When I have free time, I like…

In my free time I like to surround myself with my favorite people, light a candle, and craft! I have always had a knack for creative ambitions.

The craziest thing I’ve done is…

I have swum with dolphins!

My favorite place to study is…

The Flag Room or any of the amazing coffee shops around Bryan-College Station. You can’t go wrong with good people and good coffee.

My favorite ECON professor is…

Dr. Schulman is fantastic! I first met him as a speaker at an Economics Society meeting, and really appreciated his passion for the subject and life experience. I later took his ECMT 461 class, and admire his expansive knowledge and care for his classes!

My favorite part of being an Economics student is…

I love the diverse array of classes that prepare us to be well-rounded professionals!

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

My Grandma! My family is really important to me, and we lost her when I was younger, so I would love to share an afternoon soaking up her wisdom. She is one of my greatest role models and has shaped a lot of what I value!

If I knew I could not fail, I would…

Start my own business. Eventually with the right community and vision I would love to navigate entrepreneurship at some point in my career.

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

I would love to travel around the world for a few years, and settle down in a beautiful place and open a tea room! My mom and grandma used to take me to tea rooms as a kid, and I have always loved how beautiful and peaceful they are!

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

I am really passionate about servant leadership! I have been so blessed to have opportunities throughout college in which I have learned to lead, and this has caused me to become increasingly passionate about contemplating my purpose, impact, and how I serve others. I am pursuing this through student involvement now, and continually work to use my experiences to become the best servant leader I can be.

After graduation, I plan to…

I am still working on solidifying exactly what my purpose may be, but right now I hope to obtain a Masters degree, begin working in financial planning or in the business sector, and eventually once I have adequate experience start my own business that may leave a lasting impact in my community!

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

I will never forget the first time I met Rev! Aggie Football is fantastic, but the moment she runs across the field as the players come out might be my favorite part of the game.
