My personal motto is: To better yourself before you try to better the others.

My goals are: My goals are to become a practicing dentist and to manage a nonprofit organization that helps the Medicaid dental patients nationwide.

I selected UNCG because: I enjoy the superstitions we have on this this campus -- the little things really make UNCG home to me.

My best UNCG moment: When I was accepted to be a member of the Spartan Orientation staff.

My biggest surprise at UNCG: The amount and variety of activities to partake in on campus.

My favorite place on campus: The fountain behind the Elliot University Center. I enjoy sitting outside to do my homework, and I have found that area to be very quiet and a nice place to just sit and get things done.

On the weekends: I spend time with my friends. Throughout the week we are all very busy and we don't typically get to see each other so, on the weekends we all get together and participate in activities on campus, explore Greensboro, or just stay in and watch a movie.

My favorite class: My favorite class is Calculus 2 because my professor has worked to make the environment open and fun while keeping everyone involved in the course.

I am involved in: The Dental Club, Math Club, SOS, Ukirk Campus Ministry and the Lloyd International Honors College.

My favorite food on campus: The salad bar in the cafeteria.

Favorite thing to do in Greensboro: Swing dancing through the Piedmont Swing Dancing Society.

If I could have a superpower, it would be: To make all A's in a single bound. (Superman reference)

My one piece of advice for prospective students is: My advice for prospective students is that it is OK to not have a plan. College can seem ominous and intimidating if you do not have your plan perfectly pieced together, but college is for finding out who you really are and what you really want to do in life.
