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

My phenomenal mother. I come from a single parent home, so I saw her raise my sister and me alone and provide for basic needs and also fulfill wants by any means necessary. She’s also a cancer survivor. She’s beautiful, strong, smart, and incredible.

What is your favorite spot on campus? Why?

Downstairs in the Student Center. The resource centers are really cool, but it’s my favorite spot to nap and watch Netflix in between classes.

What brought you to Mizzou?

When I applied and came to visit I felt like Mizzou was home. I loved the campus environment and the people. Coming from Mississippi (10 hours away) I had a lot of adjusting to do, but from the moment I stepped on campus I felt connected to all that Mizzou had to offer. Besides the weird weather, Missouri is pretty cool.

What is your favorite dining hall and why?

Rollins, because they serve the best breakfast. The chocolate chip pancakes are the bomb!!
