Family ties to Texas A&M:

I am a first generation Aggie!

I chose to attend Texas A&M because…

I wanted to be a part of a strong community that would last long after I graduate college.

My favorite things to do on campus are…

I love to go on walks with my friends around Aggie Park now that it is built! It’s also a great place to study when the weather is nice.

When I have free time, I like…

To read! I love almost every genre and make it a goal to read at least 50 books a year.

The craziest thing I’ve done is…

I bought myself a tattoo gun and have given myself and some of my friends tiny tattoos.

My favorite place to study is…

The College Station public library. It is a lovely, quiet environment with a lot of helpful resources!

My favorite ECON professor is…

Dr. Craig Schulman

My favorite part of being an Economics student is…

That it combines my love for math with logical and rational thinking that pushes me to be a well-rounded thinker.

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

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

If I knew I could not fail, I would…

Move to New York City and start a life there

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

Own my own bookstore!

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

I always been passionate about ensuring justice for all people. I consider myself have a strong sense of moral character and am very strong in my beliefs. As a full time student, the main way I am able to pursue this goal right now is by advocating for social issues and voting in local, state, and national elections. By obtaining my JD, I am hoping to make a career out of this passion after my time at Texas A&M.

After graduation, I plan to…

Take a year off to work and save money, then go to law school

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

BTHO Alabama in football and basketball!
