Where are you now? West Elementary School, Gulfport, MS

Why did you choose to come to MSU? In April of my 11th grade year, I visited MSU for the first time and fell in love with the campus and the people there. 7 months later, I came again for a preview day, and I met Ms. Amy Prisock (then recruitment coordinator for the college of education). She informed me of METP and that I met all the requirements and the rest is history!

How did the METP enhance your college experience at Mississippi State? I had already met so many great people through this program. I made friends with the other students in my cohort before even moving to MSU and some of them have become my best friends.

What were some of your other involvements on campus? I was involved in Young Life youth group and intramural sports. 

Funny moment/Interesting Fact? I was a die-hard Ole Miss fan for 17 years! (Which changed the second I stepped foot on MSU’s campus.)
