Why are you attending UO? I had the opportunity to be a part of the Cheerleading Team here at the University and I wanted to make a difference by being a role model in the community while also getting an amazing education.

How/why do you want to change the world?  I think there’s a lot to be done and we’ve only touched the surface. Our world needs leaders and people that others feel they can count on to make it a better place. I want to make this one life better for everyone.

What has been the best part of your college experience? Getting to cheer at all the sporting events that the University has to offer.

What are you proud to have been involved with at UO?  I’m proud to say that I’m a tutor at the John E. Jaqua Center for Student Athletes. I think I can make a great impact on my fellow students and I’m very blessed to have this job.

What are some of your goals after college?  I plan on attending law school directly after I graduate and graduate in 3 years. I also hope to become a JAG in the Air Force and then go into the FBI to serve my country further.

Who’s your biggest role model/influencer? My biggest role model is my dad. He’s been through the toughest of times and has never let us see his weaknesses. He is loving and supportive, and could not possibly be a better father than he is to me and my brother. I’m beyond blessed to have that kind of man as a role model and a father.

Which fictional character is most like yourself? Blair Waldorf (in the best sense). She works hard and gets what she wants against all odds and I aspire to have those same traits.

What is one fun fact about you? One fun fact about me is that my room is always a mess. I don’t know if I’d consider it fun, but it’s a fact!
