About Me: I came to Southern Miss as a Presidential Scholar, and as a result I gained admission into the Honors College.  Throughout my freshman year the Honors College helped me reach my full academic and social potential.  Now that I have reached my sophomore year, I feel a passion to help others in the Honors College realize their goals, both academically and socially.  That I why I chose to be an Honors College Ambassador.  My favorite characteristic of the Honors College is the close knit community that a person feels, for he or she will be surrounded by like-minded people who are all striving for academic excellence so that their career goals may come to fruition. When I graduate, I plan on going to seminary and obtaining a Master's and Doctorate in Theological Studies.  After that, I plan on planting a church in an inner-city area.
