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

Sadly leave Mizzou! But the plan is to go on to grad school in California to study Forensic Psychology. I want to work for the government in the judicial system, analyzing suspects on trial to further our research on crime in society and potentially discover how to decrease it substantially. And if the opportunity arose, even counsel these individuals, in the hopes of making this world a better place to live. (NO, I won’t analyze you all summer.)

Who would you say is/are your role model(s)? Why?

My momma for sure. She is my rock. Even though I tend to be her hard place, she would go to the ends of the earth and back for me and there is no greater bond that I admire more. Also, had she not come to Mizzou and met my dad, I would not be here. Thanks mom.

What is your favorite spot on campus? Why?

The hidden booths downstairs in the Student Center, if you can catch them before other people snag them. It’s so peaceful, whether you’re trying to study or catching some zzz’s it’s the best place for both.

What is your favorite dining hall and why?

The Student Center, because nothing beats The Shack. I’ll let you in on a little secret too; they have breakfast that no one knows about. Seriously, get yourself some tater rounds and you won’t regret it.
