Who would you say is your role model? Why?

My role model is definitely my father, Chris. I have always looked up to him. His work ethic, positive outlook on life, and his adventurous spirit inspires me to get out of my comfort zone.

My dad’s gift of storytelling is one of the reasons I started writing. As a role model, he motivates me to be kind towards others and to see life as one big adventure.

How did you make Mizzou your home?

I made Mizzou my home by spending time at different places around campus. Studying at the student center, the library, or Memorial Union, as well as trying new places on campus to eat, made me feel more at home. I also built strong, close-knit relationships with individuals in my classes and my dorm
that I never knew before coming to Mizzou. Getting to know the people around me and becoming more familiar with the campus, helped me make Mizzou my new home.
