About me: I wanted to become an Ambassador for the Honors College because I wanted to share with others the positive experience that I have had during the last three years in the Honors College. I love helping future students find their home in USM's Honors College. I love showing them all the great aspects that the college has to offer students. 

The Honors College has greatly benefited me during my time at USM. The faculty and staff are always available to help and encourage me. My honors classes in General Honors were always my favorite classes because my professors cared about helping each student in the class to reach their potential. I learned so much in these classes because I was able to interact and learn from my peers instead of just listening to a lecture. 
I plan to graduate from USM in May 2014 with a major in Marketing and a certificate in Professional Selling. After graduation I plan to work for several years then get my MBA. Honors College has provided me with help choosing classes, and they have encouraged me to explore my major through my work on my thesis.
