Why did you decide to come to MSU and pursue a degree in education?
Teaching was the only career option that I could see myself doing for the rest of my life. I love getting the opportunity to encourage others to teach somethign in a way that helps them understand the lesson and enjoy it. MSU students and alumni cared so much when my family and I met and talked to them, and I knew I could be happy and successful in a place that prioritized my family, my values, and my goals.
What do you want people to know about you?
I believe wholeheartedly that every day is a new chance to do and be better to yourself and to the people around you.
What activties were you involved in on campus outside of METP?
What advice would you give to entering freshmen or students finishing up high school?
1. Be ready and willing to step out of your comfort zone. If you have trouble thinking of somethign to share with new people, it never hurts to look up conversation starters or funny puns online.
2. Remember to call your parents every once in a while.
