What inspired or interested you about your field of study? And why did you choose OSU/the college?

I am inspired to help teach the next generation of students! OSU felt like home the minute I stepped on campus as a junior in high school for a campus tour. That same summer I came back to OSU for a summer camp and stayed in Weatherford Hall. I knew OSU was home for me.

Tell us about your time at Oregon State and in the college. Is there someone or something who/that helped you be successful?

I am a proud member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. KKG has brought tons of opportunities for leadership positions and resume building activities.

What are your post-college dreams/plans?

I want to become a teacher!
