Who is your role model?

My mom is my role model in every aspect. She is the reason that I am outspoken, strong willed, and carry myself the way I do.

No matter the obstacles or setbacks my mom has had in her life, she never gave up and continued to accomplish so many things  just so that her children will be set, and I will forever be grateful and inspired by her.

How was your transition process into Mizzou from high school?

My transition process from my old college to Mizzou was great! I was nervous and anxious for what’s to come, but the leaders here at Mizzou (RAs, advisors, Summer Welcome Leaders, etc.) do a GREAT job of making you feel welcome and making sure you’re informed of everything. I never felt alone or in the dark.
