My personal motto is: BE HAPPY! Life is too short. Enjoy the little things because they happen every day, and cherish the big things because they only come around once in awhile.

My goals are: To help people in any way that I am capable of, graduate from UNCG, create a successful career and life, and have a wonderful family. Basically, make memories and have a life I am proud of!

I selected UNCG because: I feel at home on UNCG's campus and I knew I could create long-lasting memories and experiences here!

My best UNCG moment: I was about to walk back to my dorm from the EUC and it was pouring out. I didn't have an umbrella and I was contemplating running or waiting. A student who worked in the EUC food court saw me struggling and offered to walk me to where I was going with his umbrella. I said yes and thanked him about a hundred times. This was one of the moments that I knew I had picked the right school because the students and staff are one of a kind and all have huge hearts!

My biggest surprise at UNCG: The amount of opportunities and events available to students.

My favorite place on campus: The EUC lawn, because there is always something fun or exciting happening there. Not to mention, it is beautiful!

On the weekends: I love to spend time with my friends and go adventuring around
Greensboro!

My favorite class: "Fundamentals of Acting (THR 130)" – this is a beginners acting class for non-theater majors. This class was so fun and it helped me get out of my comfort zone. I needed it to fulfill a general education requirement, but I'm so glad I took it. I learned a lot and had a great time!

I am involved in: I am a member of the Spartan Orientation Staff, I'm a peer academic leader in the Foundations for Learning program, and I am a member of the Nation Society of Collegiate Scholars.

My favorite food on campus: Definitely Chick-fil-A!

Favorite thing to do in Greensboro: I love checking out local restaurants with my friends and trying new things!

If I could have a superpower, it would be: To fly!

My one piece of advice for prospective students is: There is a place for everyone at UNCG!
