About me: I wanted to become an Ambassador to give back to the Honors College community which I have so greatly benefited from. The Honors College gives me an outlet where I can explore the many possibilities that USM has to offer. I feel this the most in the small classroom environment and through a deeper connection with professors. I plan on participating in an exchange program with the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom, and I could not have done it without the support of my fellow scholars and Honor's College staff.

I don't have any immediate plans after I graduate. I'm using my time at USM to develop skills that I feel can be applied anywhere.
