How has being a Close Scholar impacted your college experience? 

Being a Close Scholar has opened up countless opportunities for me professionally and personally, in efforts to help me grow as a student and as an individual in today's society.

What has been your favorite community service experience or volunteer site and why? 

I always have the best times serving with NAMI because I admire their drive with service for spreading awareness for Mental Health and all that follows.

What advice would you give to incoming students interested in serving our community? 

I would encourage the incoming students to get as active in our community as possible because the timeless experience is so rewarding in knowing that you have helped someone in need.

Where do you see yourself in five years? 

In five years, I hope to have obtained my Master in Business Administration or Accountancy, while working to earn a Doctorate degree in Women's Studies or Gender Neutral Studies.

What is your favorite thing to do on campus or in the surrounding areas? 

I hang out with my friends in DiGs or in the local Rock Hill community.

Where is your favorite place to travel to and why, or where would you like to travel to and why? 

My favorite place to travel is Nashville, TN because I absolutely love the home feel as well as the music and culture. Where I would like to go one day is Paris, France because I have always wanted to go their since I was little. I desire to go after I graduate.

Fun fact? 

I am the youngest of three girls.
