Where are you now?

Grad School in Iceland

Why did you choose to come to MSU?

I chose MSU because I felt it was the best fit for me. After I went on a tour of the campus and saw the beautiful buildings and landscape I knew this could be a home for me.

How has the METP program enhanced your college experience at Mississippi State?

My experience has been enhanced by the people in the program more than anything else. Everyone was very welcoming the first we met and I felt like I belonged in the group. The director of the program, Shane Davis, is also a great guy who just wants the best for all of us,

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

I am a member of Shackouls Honors College.

Please share a funny moment/interesting fact about yourself.

A few years ago there was a hurricane that was supposed to be at least moderately bad and my Dad had an idea of how to deal with the power being out. His idea was to lower the air conditioning and get the house as cold as possible. This did not seem like a bad idea considering how hot it was. So we did and the storm hit, but apparently the storm was not even half as bad as had been predicted. It was barely a spring shower. Needless to say the power bill was a couple hundred dollars more than expected that month.
