Where are you now? Pelahatchie High School

Why did you choose to come to MSU? I chose Mississippi State University because it truly felt like my home the minute I stepped on campus. I had other options, and my decision was not made lightly. However, from the moment I stepped on the campus, I knew I did not belong anywhere else. I have made the greatest friends at MSU, and if I could go back, I would make the same choice again and again.

How has the METP program enhanced your college experience at Mississippi State? METP has brought me friendships and a close group of friends that I would not have had without the program. I was constantly provided support, help in classes, and advice regarding future classes and teachers. I scheduled my classes with a lot of METP fellows and in those classes, I never feel alone.

What are some of your on-campus involvements outside of METP? I was a member of Delta Gamma Sorority where I served as the Director of Rituals and Director of Public Relations. I was a part of Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society as well as the Shackouls Honors College.

Please share a funny moment/interesting fact about yourself. My birthday is on Halloween, and one year, I did something I swore I would never do; I got a chihuahua and Stella is the best pup in the world!
