About me: Since the time I stepped foot on USM's campus, the Honors College has given me all of the help and support that I have needed, with everything from information about classes to making sure my schedule was to my liking to encouraging me to get involved on campus. I wanted to become an Honors College Ambassador because the Honors College has blessed me so much through its wonderful people, the awesome classes, and all of the lifelong memories that I have made. Now, I have the opportunity as an Ambassador to give back to the place that has given so much to me.

My favorite part about the Honors College definitely has to be the active learning classes. The trips enrich the lectures so much more than a normal lecture class, and you are exposed to a wider variety of cultures and opinions. These classes help you to think outside the box and to examine viewpoints that you may have never considered before. You also get to go on some really neat trips!

After graduation, I plan to pursue a Master's degree in Forensic Science and work in a laboratory, solving mysteries with science. I also aim to write Christian fiction and travel to my heart's content.
