How did the METP enhance your college experience at Mississippi State? The METP enhanced my experience at Mississippi State so much. It allowed me to meet people, acquire friendships, and grow in my knowledge and understanding of what being a teacher was all about.

What do you want people to know about you? I love socializing with people. I love hearing their stories and experiences in life. It makes me feel connected to people everywhere.

What were some of your other involvements on campus? I was involved in the BSU, Baptist Student Union, on campus.

What advice would you give to entering freshmen or students finishing up high school? Enjoy every moment. Time flies by so fast. Also, get involved with something on campus. It can help you meet people who will become your best friends throughout college and life. Lastly, please don't run to classes. This sounds hilarious but it's true. I promise you will make it on time.
