  • What is your favorite Mizzou memory?

My favorite Mizzou memory is cheering for the Mizzou vs. Arkansas game in 2014. The stadium was the most packed I had seen all season. When we won, all of the fans rushed down to the field to celebrate with the team. I was so proud to be a tiger that night. It was one of the best experiences I had as a Mizzou Cheerleader.

  • What quote do you live by?

“Everything you’re going through is happening for a greater purpose.”

  • What excites you the most about being a 2016 Summer Welcome Leader?

I am excited to share my experiences with incoming students and be a resource to them during the school year. Additionally, I am excited to represent the University of Missouri with my fellow Summer Welcome leaders.

  • How do you make Mizzou your home?

I make Mizzou my home by getting involved and recruiting people to this university.

  • What is your favorite spot on campus? Why?

My favorite spot on campus is Tiger Grotto at the Rec. I can’t count the number of times I’ve gone to the rec with every intention to workout and ended up in the sauna or the hot tub.
