What do you want to be when you "grow up" and why?
I have always wanted to be an Attorney but then I came to WSU and I realized that's not what I want to be doing. One of my biggest passions in life is having impact in the people that meet, especially my students. I hope to someday be working for a University in either Student Affairs or the Dean of Students.

Why did you choose Washington State University?
I already had a brother attending as a student so I thought it would be awesome to go to the same school as my older brother. He is also on the cross country and track team. Plus I just love the people here! You haven't met your best friends yet till you've arrived at Washington State University.

What advice do you have for new Cougar Parents?
The single most important thing in college is that your student develops a true interest that he or she can enjoy throughout life. Let your child grow into his or her passion.

What advice do you have for new students?
Get involved, whether it's a club sport or any other organization on campus. In doing so you will find your passion and the best part of about it is that you will meet amazing people along the way who will have an impact in your life. Don't be me freshman year just playing "COD" in my residence hall. If you need help getting involved in something then just ask me.

My Favorites
Artist: Music is one of my biggest passions and I am always up to date with my music. If I had to choose one of my favorite singers I would have go with Katy Perry. Only artist to tie the legendary Michael Jackson with five #1 singles from one album and she's gorgeous.

Superheroes: I am a huge superhero nerd so I already know when the next prequels, sequels... almost any superhero movie coming out in the next few years. I prefer Marvel over DC, just in case if you were wondering. My all time favorite would have to be THOR!
