Where are you now? Lafayette Middle School, Oxford, MS

Why did you choose to come to MSU? When I visited for the first time, I fell in love with Mississippi State because of the beautiful campus and great community. Then, I began to learn more about all of the opportunities that Mississippi State had to offer, and I decided that this was where I belonged. Since then, I absolutely loved becoming part of the bulldog family!

How did the METP enhance your college experience at Mississippi State? METP gave me a great group of people with whom I would learn and grow. It helped provide a smaller community for me on such a big campus.

What were some of your other involvements on campus? I was a member of the Shackouls Honors College, and I was involved with RUF.

Funny moment/Interesting Fact? I can play the organ, and I was taught on one of the largest ones in the mid-South region.
