My personal motto is: Be the best version of yourself, and always stay true to yourself.

My goals are: To be a successful woman in business, particularly in the garment industry. Aside from being successful in business, I want to be able to make an impact.

I selected UNCG because: The diverse community and also the immense amount of opportunity that I could obtain by coming here. Also, the beautiful campus was a plus when deciding on where to go to college!

My best UNCG moment: Finally realizing that UNCG was the place for me.

My biggest surprise at UNCG: How much I have grown by coming to UNCG.

My favorite place on campus: My favorite place on campus would have to be College Avenue because of its beauty, but also because of the simplicity of it. It is especially beautiful in the fall when all the trees turn colors!

On the weekends: I like to hang out with friends, try new restaurants in Greensboro, and travel.

My favorite class: My favorite class so far has been CARS 231. In this class, I realized that I love apparel and the garment industry, and that ultimately I want to make a career out of it.

I am involved in: UNCG Swim Club, Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization, Human Resource Management Association, and Young Life. I also was a participant in the 2015-16 CONNECT living-learning community.

My favorite food on campus: Either Chick-fil-A or Au Bon Pain.

Favorite thing to do in Greensboro: Visit downtown or go to the local farmers markets.

If I could have a superpower, it would be: To have the ability to fly.

My one piece of advice for prospective students is: Be open to new things. Also, always be curious – ask those questions. Know what you want, and just go after what you want.
