Why did you choose to come to MSU? Aside from growing up in a family that was wrapped in maroon and white, I knew that Mississippi State was going to be my home from my first campus visit.  As soon as I stepped on campus, I felt the inviting atmosphere ripe with traditions and a sense of camaraderie between the students. The students here truly are a family, and that was something that I knew I wanted to be a part of.

How has the METP program enhanced your college experience at Mississippi State? METP has given me many opportunities that I would not have had without it.  The real-world teaching experience and the chances to learn from current educators have given me the tools to enter my own future classroom with confidence, and the friendships that I've been able to make with like-minded students are without equal.

What are some of your on-campus involvements outside of METP? This year, I have been involved with both the Baptist Student Union and Chi Alpha Campus Ministries.  In the fall, I play the piccolo in the Famous Maroon Band, and in the spring, I play the flute in MSU's concert band.  I am also a current member of the Shakouls Honors College and the Ladies' Social Circle.

Please share a funny moment/interesting fact about yourself.  I caught a cup from Adam Levine at a Mardi Gras parade.
