Where are you now? Itawamba Attendance Center, Fulton, MS

Why did you choose to come to MSU? I chose to come to MSU because it felt like home the moment I stepped on campus. I'd also known for a while that I wanted to become a teacher, and MSU had an amazing teaching program!

How did the METP enhance your college experience at Mississippi State? The METP allowed me to meet new people and make friends. It also helped me financially, so I could focus on my studies rather than the money.

What were some of your other involvements on campus? I was involved in the Judy and Bobby Shackouls Honors College.

Funny moment/Interesting Fact? A funny moment, actually quite embarrassing, was the time that I had mistaken sour cream for ice cream. In my defense, it was way too close to the dessert section of the restaurant.
