Where are you now?

Huey L. Porter Middle School, Canton, MS 

Why did you chose MSU? 

I chose MSU because of my love for Mississippi, the proximity  to my family, and the wonderful education opportunities that I was able to pursue there.

How did the MET Program enhance your experience at MSU

The METP gave me a wonderful community that I was able to connect with immediately. That is so important  in college, especially  when you  first get there. Through  MET I was able to go to seminars, panels, and countless other  activities  that have helped me to develop  my identity  as a future  teacher, and gave me confidence and insight. Also, it was such a blessing to be able to focus on the important things, like classes and community, instead  of feeling suffocated by student debt.

What were some of your on-campus involvements outside of METP?

I volunteered with the equine therapy program at MSU. I loved the people and the horses, and I learned so much! Also, I had a part time job over at the vet school.

Please share a funny moment/interesting fact about yourself

I love to play the flute when I can find time and space!
