  • If you could do anything with your life, what would you do?

To me, life is not about your occupation. My personal goal, of which I work towards every day, is to create a business that I am passionate about in order to create the life that I have always dreamed up. In the end, my main goal in life is to travel the world with my loved ones.

  • What quote do you live by?

“If someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you’re not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later.” – Richard Branson

  • How was your transition process into Mizzou from high school?

Transition from high school to Mizzou is exciting, scary and challenging. I used the philosophy of getting as involved as possible to take up my time in order to keep my mind off of how much I secretly missed my friends and family back home. Looking back, that method worked out incredibly.

  • What is your favorite spot on campus? Why?

Ellis library is both my favorite and my least favorite spot on campus. During exam time Ellis is the only place that I can study and I basically live there for the entire week during exams. It has everything you need to survive other than a shower. But when it’s not exam week I try to avoid Ellis at all costs.

  • If you had a theme song to describe yourself, what would it be and why?

So Good by B.o.B – mainly the quote from the song “spin the globe, wherever it lands, that’s where we’ll go” is incredible to me because I would love nothing more than to be able to literally spin a globe and travel to wherever it lands.
