As a servant leader, what advice do you have for Winthrop students in general?

My one piece of advice would be to get involved in the community and build relationships within the community. Volunteering has allowed me to meet people of all backgrounds from young preschool students to adults with special needs to non-profit donors.

What has been your favorite community service experience and why?

One of my favorite community service experiences was volunteering with the Literacy Intervention Team (LIT) at a local elementary school. I helped elementary school kids make valentine's hearts.

Fun Fact :-)

Favorite dessert is caramel ice cream
