Why did you decide to come to MSU and pursue a degree in education? Most of my family is in education. Education is a way to help others reach their goals. Carthage is just a little over an hour from Starkville, so it was nothing to take a school trip up here once or twice a year. Because of the numerous trips to Mississippi State, I just naturally felt at home on campus. 

What do you want people to know about you? I have been to every home women's basketball game the past 2 years.

What activities are you involved in on campus outside of METP? I am an equipment manager for baseball. 

What advice would you give entering freshmen or students finishing up high school? Develop time management skills. Having good grades is important, and so is developing a network. You need to set specific times to complete homework and study. Be sure to complete homework before going out because it probably will not get completed after you come back.
