Where are you now? Southaven Intermediate School, Southaven, MS

Why did you choose to come to MSU? MSU had always felt like home to me. The moment I stepped on campus I knew this was where I needed to be. The faculty, students, and the campus further proved that I made the right decision. 

How did the METP enhance your college experience at Mississippi State? The METP program allowed me to gain friends who had the same goal and aspiration of being a future teacher. Having other students to go on this journey with me was comforting and so much fun!  Also, the support of the College of Education was amazing. 

What were some of your other involvements on campus? Shackoul’s Honors College

What advice would you give to entering freshmen or students finishing up high school? Get a planner and keep up with EVERYTHING!
