What is your favorite Mizzou memory?

My favorite Mizzou memory by far has been Homecoming. It was the first time I realized what being a Tiger meant. I looked around at the game and was surrounded by a sea of gold and black. Although every single Mizzou student has a different background, major, goals and a million other tiny differences, one thing about us all is that we are all Tigers.

What excites you the most about being a 2020 Summer Welcome Leader?

I am most excited to motivate the class of 2024 and transfer students. I want to give the newest Tigers the confidence to put themselves out there and make them feel comfortable during such a scary part of their lives. The more comfortable they feel at Mizzou being themselves, the better their experience will be.
